IV. WHY CHOOSE SEL Adventures?


1. What is SEL?
SEL stands for Social and emotional learning, the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. SEL is a deeply ingrained part of the way students and adults interact both in the classroom and out of it, and helps provide children with equitable, supportive, and welcoming learning environments.

2. What are the benefits of implementing SEL in my school?
SEL helps students process and integrate their social and emotional skills in and out of school. Some of the benefits are listed below:

  • Long-term SEL culture.
  • Improved academic engagement.
  • Improved sense of community.
  • Fewer behavioral problems.
  • Positive, prosocial behavior.
  • Less emotional distress in students.

SEL benefits are often straightforward or even intuitive, however, they actually need to be learned—mostly through observation, experience, and direct guidance. Not everyone has the opportunity to learn such concepts at home, and for those that do, these cognitive and behavioral developments are not reinforced in most public learning settings.
SEL is a process, and therefore requires time, patience, and especially educators that are committed to providing a safe and caring learning environment. (Source: https://ofy.org/blog/four-major-benefits-of-socialemotional-learning/)

1. Which is the pedagogic method behind SEL Adventures?
Our lessons are designed under the cognitive-behavioral method in which students emulate, rehearse and put into practice skills with fun, interactive proposals. This method considers that behaviors are learned in various ways: through one’s own experience, the observation of others, through processes of classical or operating conditioning, through language, as well as through collaborative work, etc. Throughout their lives, people develop learning that is incorporated into their life stories, which can be problematic or functional.

Considering Private Schools don’t need time to prepares for state exams, there is more time to implement SEL in their academic curriculum. This can be translated into more value for the students as they are dedicating more time to learn about socio emotional skills.

4. Is there a specific sequence to impart the lessons?
No, SEL Adventures is designed with no specific order, allowing flexibility for teachers to design and plan his/her class accordingly, displaying the skills with the order they prefer, as many times they require to.
