The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) recognizes five core competencies that promote intrapersonal, interpersonal, and cognitive competence.  In this course, you will focus on the self-management competency. 

Self-management is one of the five social emotional learning (SEL) competencies that includes regulating one’s emotions, stress management, self-control, motivation, and setting and achieving goals (CASEL. 2020). 

Why Improve my Social and Emotional Learning Skills?

  • Educators who develop their own social and emotional learning skills improved their well being, but also improved the social, emotional, and academic development of their students (Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence; Panorama Education).

  • Students learn SEL skills when educators effectively model these skills 

Berman, S., Chaffee, S., & Sarmiento, J. (2018). The practice base for how we learn: Supporting students’ social, emotional, and academic development (The Aspen Institute).

  • Educators who incorporate and model SEL skills improve the quality of their school climate through positive teacher-student relationships, effective classroom management, job satisfaction, and improved health and well-being (Panorama Education).

Socially and emotionally competent educators develop supportive relationships, identify and manage their own emotions with others to develop and enhance their social and emotional skills (adapted from Yoder, Center on Great Teachers and Leaders, 2014).
