Social and Emotional Learning

Screen Shot 2013-07-21 at 3.02.16 PMGood educators understand that teaching isn’t just about content, it’s about forming personality and character in developing young people. Edutopia highlights the role of Social and Emotional Learning in its podcast series.

It’s not enough to simply fill students’ brains with facts. A successful education demands that their character be developed as well. That’s where social and emotional learning comes in. SEL is the process of helping students develop the skills to manage their emotions, resolve conflict nonviolently, and make responsibel decisions. Although family, community, and society are significant factors in fostering emotional intelligence and character development, educators must create a safe, supportive learning environment and integrate SEL into the curriculum.
