SEL Framework: Curated Resources and Activities from NJSACC and Colleagues

CASEL, The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning defines Social Emotional Learning (SEL) “as the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.” Development and support of SEL skills in youth and the providers that serve them is of the utmost importance.

The resource guides below are based on the CASEL 5 framework, addressing five broad and interrelated areas of competence: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Organized by the 5 competencies, activities and resources are based on age range (elementary, middle, high school and adult) and guiding facilitation questions. All curated by your colleagues, New Jersey based school-age providers!
