Social Emotional Learning and Well-Being

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the way that both students and adults learn and practice the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to:

  • Understand and manage emotions,

  • Set and achieve positive goals,

  • Feel and show empathy for others,

  •  Establish and maintain positive relationships, and

  • Make responsible decisions.

Cultivating the social and emotional competencies of all members of a school community is important for creating models for student social and emotional growth. The Collaborative for Academic Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) has identified five core SEL competencies outlined below.
