Critical pillars and benefits of Social Emotional Learning
The Critical pillars and benefits of Social Emotional Learning
One's ability to understand one’s own emotions, thoughts, and values and how they influence their behaviour.
The ability for one to manage their behaviours, thoughts, and emotions consciously and productively.
The process of using rational, thought-out reasoning to make a decision.
One's ability to build and maintain positive relationships with others.
The ability of a person to consider the perspectives of others, and communities, in a social setting and apply that understanding to their interaction with them.
Academic outcomes can be improved through the integration of Social Emotional Learning
Supportive relationships and opportunities to practice social, emotional and cognitive skills across various contexts enable students to progress academically. There are hundreds of studies that offer consistent evidence that SEL improves academic performance. Some of the benefits that SEL provides are as follows:
- SEL interventions addressing the five core competencies increase students’ academic performance by around 11 percentile points compared to students who do not participate in SEL.
- Students who participate in SEL programs are bound to show improved classroom behaviour, an increased ability to manage stress and depression, and better attitudes about themselves, others, and school.
