Decades of research show the positive effects of universal, classroom-based social-emotional learning (SEL) programs for children. Children need social-emotional skills to thrive both in the classroom and in life. SEL curricula teach children techniques to:
- Gain confidence
- Set goals
- Make better decisions
- Collaborate with others in work and play
- Navigate the world more effectively
