What Is Social-Emotional Learning?
Social-emotional learning (SEL) is the process of developing the self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for school, work, and life success.
People with strong social-emotional skills are better able to cope with everyday challenges and benefit academically, professionally, and socially. From effective problem-solving to self-discipline, from impulse control to emotion management and more, SEL provides a foundation for positive, long-term effects on kids, adults, and communities.
Children thrive. Schools win. Workplaces benefit. Society strengthens. All due to social-emotional learning.
In Whitehouse ISD stakeholders will work to support the development of social-emotional skills in our students by implementing SEL strategies as a part of a developmental guidance curriculum, during classroom instruction, and in a partnership with home. Our goals are to empower students to have a meaningful impact on the world, pursue their individual gifts and abilities, become productive, responsible citizens and to be relentless, self-directed learners.
