Social Emotional Learning
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) refers to the process of developing the skills, attitudes, and knowledge necessary for students to understand and manage their emotions, develop positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and achieve academic and personal goals. SEL focuses on the development of the whole child and seeks to promote their well-being, social skills, and academic success.
SEL is based on the understanding that emotions play a significant role in learning and that students who have a strong foundation in social and emotional skills are better equipped to handle the challenges of school and life. SEL programs typically include a variety of activities and strategies that promote self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.
