Social and emotional learning (SEL) enhances students’ capacity to integrate skills, attitudes, and behaviors to deal effectively and ethically with daily tasks and challenges.There are five core competencies that can be taught in many ways across many settings. Self-awareness, Self-management, Social awareness, Relationship skills and Responsible decision-making.
Researchers have found that what most effects learning are social and emotional factors, such as peer relationships, the classroom climate and students’ interaction with teachers. Further, recent global research into SEL and the impact it is having in schools shows that teaching children social, emotional and cognitive skills raises academic achievements, and leads to higher test results and grades.The combination of teaching academia, along with social and emotional aspects of learning, appears to be a sure winner.
At Saba Verda we seek excellence paying special attention to Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) as an all encompassing theory, with a universal school-based program. Positive ethical codes and responsible behaviour are our fundamental values which are implemented through the program.
"New analysis finds that social and
emotional and cognitive skills are each very important for future life. Their
development is related. Children with strong cognitive skills typically show stronger
social and emotional development, and vice-versa. However, social and emotional
measures provide important signals about likely outcomes above and beyond what
is picked up by measures of literacy and numeracy. Compared with cognitive abilitya ssessed at the same age (10 years), social and emotional skills:
mental health and well-being);
of obesity, smoking and drinking, and better self-rated health);
higher income and wealth, being employed, and not being in social housing);
obtaining a degree, having higher wages and being employed in a top job
(although there is nonetheless a relationship to these outcomes)." Open the report to read more
