Social Emotional Learning (SEL), as defined by the Collaborative for Academic Social Emotional Learning, is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
SEL is not a single program or teaching method but an integrated approach across classrooms, schools, districts, homes & communities. SEL is emerging as a KEY INDICATOR OF STUDENT SUCCESS in life and learning.
The work of the AddyPres organizations advocates for and supports CASEL recommended SEL frameworks as a powerful tool that can build positive life skills. Our organization creates high level introductory & awareness resources & programs that inform, enrich and build opportunities for committed educators to gain the funding, training, collaboration & support they require to be successful partners within their communities and with families.
