WHY TRANSFORMATIVE SEL?
Revolutionizing education is at the forefront of our society as we look to empower future generations to become the next leaders, innovators, and game changers. Doing so will require helping school communities embed a trauma-informed, student-centered, and culturally relevant Transformative SEL approach that embraces student identity, voice, agency, and belonging.
Transformative SEL is the vehicle for helping schools, families, and communities build partnerships to advocate for and co-construct safe, supportive, and inclusive learning environments so all children can thrive.
Re-imaging education necessitates that we transform how we individually and collectively teach, model, and shape the social-emotional competencies in both adults and children.
Implementing effective and sustainable Transformative SEL requires that educators, families, and communities be provided with quality professional learning resources.
Together, let’s pave the way for a better future!
Research conducted by CASEL and other leading experts in the field of SEL, reveals that when schools consciously prioritize social-emotional learning (SEL) they experience noticeable transformations.
