Developing Your Socio-Emotional Learning (SEL) Toolkit

What is Socio-Emotional Learning?

Here’s a definition of Socio-Emotional Learning from edutopia:

How do we define social and emotional learning (SEL)? Researchers generally agree upon five key competencies of SEL (Durlak, Weissberg, Dymnicki, Taylor & Schellinger, 2011). These competencies provide the foundation for maintaining high-quality social relationships and for responding to the challenges of life.

1. SELF-AWARENESS
  • What are my thoughts and feelings?
  • What causes those thoughts and feelings?
  • How can I express my thoughts and feelings respectfully?
2. SELF-MANAGEMENT
  • What different responses can I have to an event?
  • How can I respond to an event as constructively as possible?
3. SOCIAL AWARENESS
  • How can I better understand other people's thoughts and feelings?
  • How can I better understand why people feel and think the way they do?
4. RELATIONSHIP SKILLS
  • How can I adjust my actions so that my interactions with different people turn out well?
  • How can I communicate my expectations to other people?
  • How can I communicate with other people to understand and manage their expectations of me?
5. RESPONSIBLE DECISION MAKING
  • What consequences will my actions have on myself and others?
  • How do my choices align with my values?
  • How can I solve problems creatively?
