Understanding the Benefits of SEL for Your Students and School Culture
No one is born understanding how to manage their emotions. Those skills must be taught, and students must feel free to express themselves as they make mistakes and ask questions in order to develop their social- and emotional-management abilities.
A high-quality social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum provides an opportunity for students to explore their emotions and deepen their understanding of others. While it can be easy to push SEL aside for core academic requirements, the benefits are clear: Developing a child’s inner sense of self and encouraging positive social and emotional wellbeing can only serve to improve academics and your school environment.
