Audience: Educators | Topic: Social Emotional Learning | Hosted by: Office of Standards and Instructional Support
The importance of social and emotional learning (SEL) cannot be overstated. These skills are critical to maintaining healthy lifestyles, enabling children and adults to identify and manage their thoughts, emotions and behaviors. During the pandemic, high school students receiving virtual or blended instruction more frequently reported that their mental or emotional health worsened. Regardless of the instructional model, the most effective way for schools to support SEL and student wellness, connection and achievement is to create a positive school climate. Teaching social and emotional skills improves the overall mental and behavioral health of children, families and communities. This module outlines approaches to implementing social and emotional learning opportunities for students.
