What is Social & Emotional Learning?

Social and Emotional Learning in D102

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults develop fundamental social and emotional skills to handle themselves, their relationships and their tasks effectively and ethically.  (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional


SEL is not a program but rather is an integrated, multi-component approach involving every student.  Teachers intentionally create a caring school community as well as explicitly teaching, modeling and giving students opportunities to practice the social-emotional skills outlined in the Illinois Social and Emotional Learning Standards:

  • Self-Awareness and Self-Management
  • Social Awareness and Interpersonal Skills
  • Decision-Making and Responsible Behaviors (

Each person is asked, assisted, and inspired to live up to the ideals of fairness, respect, caring and responsibility.

SEL is integrated into all aspects of the school day, including every curricular area and all other programs and activities.  The learning environment is structured to build a sense of autonomy and belonging and to give children the skills to feel competent in handling academic and social skills.
