Over 100 pages of Social and Emotional Standards Checklists for grade K-8. Perfect for intervention groups, evaluations, progress monitoring, and SEL programs. PDF and Editable Powerpoint included.

CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning) has established five areas of Social Emotional Learning that are shown to be important to academic and life success. A few school districts and states have taken this work and developed standards to be used at each grade level or a multi-grade level band. The gold standards of this work have been developed by the Illinois State Board of Education, Austin Independent School District (AISD), and Anchorage School District.

The AISD and the Anchorage School District use almost identical standards, goals, and benchmarks. I have merged these two sets of standards into one given their similarity. These districts also created five grade bands (early elementary, upper elementary, middle school, early high school, and late high school). Elementary through Middle School is included here.

The Illinois State Board of Education created 3 goals that are drawn from CASEL’s five areas, and then created 10 standards within those three goals. Each grade has two to three levels of skills/performance descriptors that should be expected to be accomplished under each standard. I prefer the format and content of the ISBE’s standards, but felt that Anchorage and AISD’s standards may be helpful for some districts.
