Social Emotional Learning
WHAT IS SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING?
Social emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which boys and girls and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for being a healthy adult. This includes problem-solving skills and intergender communication and understanding, as well as teaching kids to embrace diversity and build healthy relationships that will last well into adulthood.
Sanford Harmony is a social emotional learning program for Pre-K-6 grade students designed to foster intergender communication and understanding, connection, and community both in and outside the classroom and develop boys and girls into compassionate and caring adults.
We use SEL skills when we:
Resolve conflicts or disagreements
Form and strengthen relationships
Recognize and manage emotions
Empathize with others and support them
Collaborate in the workplace
Interact with people with different experiences, backgrounds, and opinions
