Social and Emotional Learning (SEL): A Key to Children’s Success in School and Life
-Excerpts from
CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning)
To succeed in school, students need to be engaged, interested, and excited to be there. They need to know how to focus their attention on their work, keep trying even when they get discouraged or face setbacks, work effectively with other students and adults, and be good communicators and problem-solvers. These skills form a foundation for young people’s success not just in school, but in their adult lives as members of the community, as productive workers, and as parents.

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is a process for helping children and even adults develop the fundamental skills for life effectiveness. SEL teaches the skills we all need to handle ourselves, our relationships, and our work, effectively and ethically.
Sandra Clifton has served on the Yale RULER Team of Emotional Literacy to teach this curriculum of SEL to schools in Brooklyn, and is now sharing these skills of positive thinking with teens at her academic coaching center in Brooklyn.
