What is Social Emotional Learning?

Social emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire the knowledge, attitudes and skills to strengthen self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship building and responsible decision-making.

We believe SEL is important because...

  • All learning occurs in the context of emotion with positive emotion facilitating learning and negative emotion interfering with learning.
  • Good instruction includes the development of academic knowledge and social/emotional learning.
  • Social/emotional learning is the responsibility of the entire educational system and must be approached deliberately -- it is integral to everything we do.
