CI6183 - Integrating Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in Instruction

Credits: 3
This course focuses on how educators promote social-emotional competence (social-emotional learning) and both moral and civic virtue (character education) through curriculum and instruction and all facets of school life. Students deepen understanding of these
complementary and converging approaches to furthering whole-child teaching. Students learn about the historical-developmental foundations and categorize approaches to social-emotional and character development (SECD). Students investigate progress states have made creating standards with benchmarks, explore strategies for building relationships and caring communities, evaluate programs and program planning guidelines, practice integrating SECD into daily instruction, and apply information to design a SECD program.
