Social-Emotional Learning

A Systematic Approach that Leads to Student Success

Social and emotional learning (SEL) makes a difference for students. Mounting research tells us that a systemic approach to SEL in districts and schools yields positive outcomes for students during school and into young adulthood. Since 2011, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and large, urban districts have been taking on SEL as a districtwide priority and integrating SEL across all aspects of their districts.

CASEL and educators from the field discuss what it means to approach the work systemically, what is working, what is challenging, what results they are experiencing, and how this important work is paving the way for other districts.

In this on-demand webinar you’ll learn:

  • What SEL is, why it’s important, and how it impacts practice
  • Key areas of engagement that schools and districts should focus on
  • Tools and resources you can access to support SEL work in your districts
