Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)
The Committee for Children defines Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) as “the process of developing the self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for school, work, and life success.” As teachers, administrators and parents become familiar with the principles of SEL, they are incorporating it into more and more schools and organizations.
