Course Description:

Developing Students’ Self-Awareness and Self-Management

Research clearly indicates the benefit of incorporating Social emotional Learning (SEL) into instruction. Positive emotions and strong relationships can greatly benefit and facilitate learning in the classroom, and conversely, negative emotions, stress, and a lack of positive relationships can hinder or even stop the learning process. Negative and destructive behaviors such as bullying and drug use have been linked to poor social-emotional skills in students.

 When students develop SEL competencies such as self-awareness and self-management, they are more pivoted to learn and are more committed to school and education. Students are more likely to have improved attitudes toward themselves and others and decreased problems such as acting out in class, getting suspended or held back.

 Beyond behavior, SEL integration has shown to increase academic achievement by an average of 11%. These results are consistent across all grade levels, rural and urban schools, and school types, including schools with ethnically and racially diverse student populations.

 In this course, we will focus on how to help students develop self-awareness and self-management skills in the classroom that will not only serve their educational needs but also help them to be more successful in life.
