Education is a complex system. We want learners to emerge from public school with both hard facts and the Life Ready Skills that prepare them for both present and future challenges, inside and outside of the classroom.
As we talk more about the importance of Life Ready Skills, the topic of social emotional learning comes into play. Here’s what social emotional learning is, and why it matters for public education.
Social emotional learning is more than a buzzword. It’s a method of thinking and instruction. SEL is the process that all learners use to manage relationships, emotions, and apply knowledge to make the best decisions possible.
SEL is crucial to learner outcomes. It needs to be integrated into everything we do as educators. The traditional systems of instruction aren’t designed to put SEL top-of-mind. Using a learner-oriented framework, we can make SEL a reality and help millions of learners.
Here’s why SEL is important.
SEL doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, the e2L LIFe process automatically and seamlessly integrates social emotional learning into the classroom. You don’t need another initiative. With LIFe, you get “just one thing” instead of “one more thing.”
Equip learners with the necessary Life Ready Skills through designing relevant, meaningful learning experience that include the elements of SEL to see real, measurable results.
