SEL - Self-Awareness
What is SEL?
The Westfield Public School District has created a series of short TED-style Talks to explain Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and each of its five core competencies, with examples of how they are being used in our district and the research that tells us why they work. We hope this series helps you to better understand the tremendous benefits of social and emotional learning. This introduction by Superintendent Dr. Margaret Dolan provides an overview of SEL.Uploaded Feb 04, 2019
