GET TO KNOW SEL AND IT’S FIVE LEARNING CATEGORIES
Social Emotional Learning skills can be thought of as 5 distinct categories. Self Awareness, which is the ability to understand and manage your own feelings and to know your strengths and weaknesses. Self Management is the ability to manage your behavior and impulses, to have integrity and to act according to your values. Social Awareness is the ability to understand and have empathy for others. Relationship Management is knowing how to work with others and get along effectively. Finally, Responsible Decision Making is the ability to make good decisions and know how to problem solve effectively both alone and in groups.
Within these 5 categories there are hundreds of individual skills that can be taught and learned for children to grow up to be successful adults in our communities. Let LearningSEL show you how to help your children or students gain these crucial skills for success!
GET TO KNOW SEL FOR PARENTS
The nature of childhood has changed in the last 40 years. Children are coming to school without essential social and emotional skills. These skills are crucial for success! While there is a movement for schools to teach these skills in classrooms, we know that children’s learning is improved when there is a consistent message from both home and school. When parents and teachers work together, this consistent message is possible.
GET TO KNOW SEL FOR TEACHERS
In our online or in-person training sessions, you’ll learn how to help students connect with and understand their emotional experience, thereby enabling them to make better choices with a specific problem solving format. We’ll show you how to identify social skills your students require and how to embed activities and lessons that support such skills within existing academic lesson plans.
