Social Emotional Learning, SEL is an educational approach that addresses students’ emotional, individual needs and social strategies. Since the 1980s CASEL among other groups, have been researching and implementing SEL. It has been proven in studies that students who receive SEL instruction raise their test scores an average of 8 points and have less behavioral referrals.
This handbook with SEL activities and strategies, is adaptable and differentiated for any student or grade level. It is full of lessons that I’ve used during my experience with SEL. I have made notes where you can adjust the activities or lessons. Please feel free to add or take out anything that you feel will better serve your students.
I have provided information on the SEL competencies and teaching tips for every activity so that you can feel confident in your implementation of this curriculum.
You will find ways to enhance community and culture. There are many ideas for morning meetings, brain breaks and opening/closing activities. These lessons will encourage growth mindset and better focus.
This accompanies the task cards in my store. You will benefit from the teacher notes and the additional SEL information.
