SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL LEARNING
Social and emotional learning (SEL) involves processes through which children and adults develop fundamental emotional and social competencies to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
SEL is a process whereby children and adults develop competencies in 5 areas:
SEL Goal 1
Develop self-awareness and self-management skills to achieve school and life success.
SEL Goal 2
Use social-awareness and interpersonal skillsto establish and maintain positive relationships.
SEL Goal 3
Demonstrate decision-making skills and responsible behaviors in personal, school, and community contexts.
Clore & Huntsinger, 2007; Zeidner, 1998; Wentzel, 1998;1999;2000; Osterman, 2010; Allen et al., 2011
Positive emotions help us pay attention, remember, solve problems, and make decisions.
Negative emotions suppress attention and memory.
Mindsets like self-efficacy and school connectedness influence motivation and effort.
Relationships are the foundation for learning.
Teachers can effectively reinforce SEL throughout their academic instruction.
CREATE POSITIVE LEARNING CLIMATE
School climates with positive relationships, clear expectations, and collective responsibility establish appropriate behaviors as the norm. Respectful, learning-focused, participatory classroom environments with well-managed procedures and behaviors maximize learning time
(Examples: PBIS or Foundations, Second Step, Restorative Conversations, Talking Circles)
TEACH SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL SKILLS
Explicit curricula, along with integrated instructional practices that promote social and emotional development, teach students how to form positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and set goals. These are critical skills for college and career success.
(Ex: Peer Jury, Check In/Check Out)
For at-risk students, classroom-based responses can help de-escalate behavior problems, clinical group interventions address anger, trauma, and violence; and restorative practices provide students with strategies to resolve conflicts
For students with the highest levels of need, highly-targeted and individualized behavior strategies provide more intensive intervention and monitoring.
