SEL Day Values
The theme this year was Finding Common Ground, Pursuing Common Good.
On Monday, March 7th, we participated in a #SELday Twitter chat discussing the theme of common ground and common good.
This was one of the questions: "How does SEL support students to build decision-making skills that advance the #CommonGood?"
Our answer was, "SEL teaches perspective-taking, social awareness, listening, emotional management, and relationship-building skills that help students become more thoughtful decision-makers and tap into their leadership qualities. All of these prepare students to advance the #CommonGood."
Learn more about our values around SEL by reading the rest of the Twitter chat.
