What are SEL lessons?

Your student's grade level school counselor provides all students with SEL lessons focusing on a new topic each lesson. We chose certain topics based off of our students needs as well as crucial topics that we felt were important to be covered. Students have been surveyed by their grade level school counselor to find out how they are feeling, what needs they have, who they are connected to, and what they are doing to take care of themselves. SEL lesson topics have included Adjusting to Change, Stress Management, Self-Care, Organization, & Digital Citizenship.
