You’re not alone. SEL stands for social emotional learning, and it’s a hot topic at the moment among educators with good reason.
Can Emotional Intelligence Be Taught?
by PGM Production | Sep 11, 2013 | Education, Social Competencies
Once a small corner of education theory, S.E.L. has gained traction in recent years, driven in part by concerns over school violence, bullying and teen suicide. But while prevention programs tend to focus on a single problem, the goal of social-emotional learning is grander: to instill a deep psychological intelligence that will help children regulate their emotions.
