Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Competencies.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning
