This tool can be used to assess strengths and areas to develop for promoting SEL through explicit instruction, integration into academic instruction, and a supportive classroom climate.
A supportive and equitable environment in all classrooms serves as a platform for all academic, social and emotional learning. At the core of a supportive classroom is a caring, engaging teacher who establishes authentic trusting relationships with each student.
Schoolwide norms help operationalize how all staff and students will contribute to a school culture that achieves their shared vision.
Foster supportive classroom environments that engage in explicit SEL and integrate SEL throughout instruction.
Develop a coordinated approach for supporting students’ social and emotional learning across the school, classrooms, homes, and communities.
Cultivate a community of adults who engage in their own social and emotional learning, collaborate on strategies for promoting SEL, and model SEL throughout the school.
By integrating SEL into student support services through a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS), schools are better equipped to ensure that all students have what they need to succeed.
