Incorporating SEL in schools has long-lasting and global results. Teaching students at a young age how to manage their emotions, resolve issues, and work together, can positively impact their academic performance, and ability to thrive in their future careers and communities.
SEL also fits into trauma-informed instruction by helping students reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.
Movement-Based Learning’s Role in SEL
Movement is an amazing vehicle for students to learn social-emotional skills. Our program offers engaging learning opportunities for students to be creative and work together.
