Social and Emotional Learning

Teachers play a significant role in helping create the kind of classroom environment that promotes social-emotional learning (SEL) and positive social-emotional development among students through integration of SEL curricula and building safe and supportive learning environments. As we’ve learned nationally during the COVID-19 pandemic, schools are critical in our communities to supporting children and their families. Teachers need to be prepared to manage daily stressors within contemporary school settings that directly impact their well-being and the social-emotional development of students. 

We at TSPC see the implementation of SEL through the lens of two frameworks simultaneously: CASEL for supporting social and emotional competency development of K-12 students and adults, and the Social, Emotional and Cultural Competencies Framework, created by the CRTWC, for enhancing an educator’s own competencies and implementing SEL practices within the classroom.
