Have you heard the term Social Emotional Learning, or SEL recently and thought, what is social emotional learning and why does it matter?
Social Emotional Learning, or SEL, is the process by which children and adults learn to build relationships, identify and manage their own emotions, learn empathy and how to take the perspective of others, and to make good choices in their daily lives. But SEL is more than just learning the skills of social behavior, i.e. the “what”; it is also about learning the “why” of these behaviors. How we teach students becomes just as important as what we teach.
In this blog post, we will discuss experiences with SEL, SEL and Children, SEL and Adults, and why this is such an important topic. As an added bonus, we will be including books and activities that will assist you in implementing social emotional learning in the classroom.
