Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

What is Social Emotional Learning (SEL)?

SEL means learning to manage emotions, show self-control, set goals, stay disciplined and organized, bounce back from setbacks, make good choices, resolve conflicts, and much more. These are critical skills that help children to succeed in school and thrive in life.

SEL is happening in every school, whether we call it "SEL" or not. In fact, this work has occurred in schools for as long as schools have existed. What continues to evolve are the tools and approaches that we use to teach these skills to children.
