Social Emotional Learning in schools is about “who we are and how we want to be.” SEL is integrated in to all of our interactions with others. Social emotional learning builds on the foundation that attachment is the prerequisite for all learning and the carrier of all development. Social emotional learning appeals to a “felt sense” as the brain feels first, then thinks and learns. SEL emphasizes procedures, rituals, extreme predictability and relationships.  Check out this article full of simple tips on how to promote SEL in the classroom .
