you produce citizens of good character.” -Plato

SEL helps to develop five core competencies.
It started in 1994 with Collaborative to advance social and emotional learning –CASEL and in 1995 with a book by Daniel Goleman became extremely popular.
With support from Fetzer, Goleman published Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ, where he argued that character matters and the skills that build character can be taught.
The goal of education today and has always been to prepare children to be responsible, productive, caring, and engaged citizens. So, Happy SELing!!!
