Social Emotional Learning

At Passow, our education focuses on the whole child and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is an important component.
SEL, as defined by the not-for-profit Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL), is the "process whereby children and adults develop essential social and emotional skills, knowledge and attitudes" related to the core areas of social and emotional competency:
1) Self-awareness
2) Self-management
3) Social awareness
4) Relationship skills
5) Responsible decision-making
The Illinois Learning Standards include three goals for SEL:
        1. Develop self-awareness and self-management skills to achieve school and success.
        2. Use social awareness and interpersonal skills to establish and maintain positive relationships.
        3. Demonstrate decision-making skills and responsible behaviors in personal, school and community contexts.
