In this course, we'll use the CASEL Social-Emotional Framework, as well as the New York State SEL and Mental Health benchmarks to explore social-emotional learning. You'll look at these frameworks through the lens of "what am I already doing to address these?”, as well as "how can I grow?”. This introductory course will help you and your students to have a fulfilling and enriching school year! (This is a NYSED Continuing Teacher Leader Education (CTLE) course.
