It’s time to dig in and explore what social-emotional learning is and why it is so critical in education today. This course is for teachers, administrators, and district leaders who have realized they need to prioritize SEL but aren’t quite sure how to do it or where to start.
It’s time to break it all down! From basic definitions to real life SEL success stories to concrete steps you can take today, tomorrow, and in the future for making SEL more than just a box you check off in the to-do list or a boxed curriculum you buy. Let’s find the gems in social-emotional learning and make the switch from education that focuses on learning a bunch of stuff to education that focuses on learning how to be a human in the modern world.
It’s time for social-emotional learning to be a priority. Let’s make it happen!
