What is Social Emotional Learning?

Social, emotional, and cognitive learning is defined broadly as a process through which individuals develop awareness and skills in managing emotions, setting goals, establishing relationships, and making responsible decisions that contribute to success in life. When schools focus on social emotional learning, they approach education with an understanding of the profound impact that emotions have on student learning and behavior.

SEL Guiding Principles:

Self-Awareness - Recognizing one's emotions and values as well as one's strengths and limitations.
Self-Management - Managing emotions and behaviors to achieve one's goals.
Social Awareness - Showing understanding and empathy for others.
Relationship Skills - Forming positive relationships, working in teams, dealing effectively with conflict.
Responsible Decision Making - Making ethical, constructive choices about personal and social behavior.
