International SEL Day

SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL)

by R. Middleton (5-8 Counselor, McGuffey PK-8)

 In support of the important work of SEL in our schools, I would like to take a moment to inspire and inform our community members about the great work that is being done right here with our children. 

  McGuffey students are actively engaged in Social Emotional Learning (SEL).  SEL is an essential part of education and human development.  It is the process of gaining and applying knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities.  It helps students manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make caring and responsible decisions. 

Did you know? There is an abundance of research showing that SEL programs promote academic success and reduce misconduct, substance abuse, and emotional distress for students.

SEL makes a difference! McGuffey students in grades 6-8 experience SEL every day through curriculum called Second Step.  This program is modern, web-based, and responds to the needs of today’s students.  It is backed by the latest research in brain development and social psychology.
