The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is the world’s leading organisation advancing one of the most important fields in education in decades: the practice of promoting integrated academic, social, and emotional learning for all children in preschool through high school.
Like many similar frameworks, CASEL’s integrated framework promotes intrapersonal, interpersonal, and cognitive competence.
Social and Emotional Learning
SEL enhances students’ capacity to integrate skills, attitudes, and behaviours to deal effectively and ethically with daily tasks and challenges.
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Research supporting SEL comes from multiple fields: neuroscience, health, economics, and more. Learn more.
The Secrets of Happy Adventuring is an SEL resource filled with lessons and concepts developed around the 5 core SEL competencies.
