Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) Educator Wheel

The Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Educator Wheel supports teachers and other educators in successfully creating a culture conducive to learning, resulting in improved teacher and student performance and increased overall achievement.

 

Students need social and emotional skills to handle the challenges of learning and living in society. Teachers are faced with increasing variability in students’ abilities to control their own behavior and to appropriately interact and communicate with others.
 
Benefits:
 

  • Educators who seek a simplistic way to introduce SEL to their staff will find direction.
  • Educators exploring resources that complement an existing approach or program will find numerous ideas.
  • New and experienced educators can reflect upon and deepen their understanding of the five core competencies of SEL: self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, self-management, and responsible decision-making.
  • Conversations can be initiated with wheel content to build capacity and support for SEL integration throughout the school.
  • A common SEL language can be acquired and used to improve the integration of SEL across the grades and promote a shared SEL vision.
  • The wheel may be used to enhance or continuously improve existing SEL practices.
