What is SEL (Social and Emotional Learning)

APS: Families Connected created a video in English and Spanish that discusses the importance of SEL as well as its goals.

Social and emotional learning, or SEL for short, is all about teaching children social, emotional, and awareness skills. This video in English and Spanish goes into the five parts of SEL:

  1. Understanding and handling emotions
  2. Setting and achieving positive goals
  3. Feeling and showing empathy for others
  4. Creating and keeping positive relationships
  5. Making responsible decisions. 

Each of these parts is a unique skill that can help your child grow into a successful adult.

We hope that you enjoy the video and that it helps to show the value of social and emotional learning.
