You might think of social and emotional learning (SEL) as a compartmentalized program separate from academics. But the truth is, all learning is social and emotional. What teachers say, the values they express, the materials and activities they choose, and the skills they prioritize all influence how students think, see themselves, and interact with content and with others. Educators must be intentional in how they help their students develop socially and emotionally.
In this new series of videos based on Nancy Frey, Doug Fisher, and Dominique Smith’s All Learning is Social and Emotional, we present the authors’ method for teaching students while considering their social-emotional needs, a comprehensive, five-part model of SEL that’s easy to integrate into everyday content instruction, no matter what subject or grade level you teach. The series will offer examples of educators using these techniques and strategies to build their students' sense of identity and confidence in their ability to learn, overcome challenges, influence the world around them, help them regulate their emotional responses, learn problem solving, foster social skills including teamwork and sharing, and help them establish and repair relationships.
