Social Emotional Learning SEL
Research shows that SEL improves achievement by an average of 11%.
It increases prosocial behaviors (such as kindness, sharing, and empathy), improves student attitudes toward school, and reduces depression and stress among students (Durlak et al., 2011).
Effective SEL programming involves coordinated classroom, schoolwide, family, and community practices that help students develop self-awareness, self-managment, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
