The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) has identified five competencies that are crucial to effective Social and Emotional Learning for children and adults. Social-Awareness is one of those competencies and this course will guide educators through the examination of your personal self.
Elevating your practice as an educator is more than just a depth of understanding of your curriculum area, or your job function(s). Connecting with your students, their families, and colleagues is a critical component of elevating your effectiveness when working with others.
Your awareness of self and others, experiences and growth are critical components to understanding and assisting your students and the adults connected to their lives. You should continue to acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to be competent and successful in relationships with others, especially with those who differ from you, holding values and beliefs different from yours, and whose experiences differ from yours.
The deep understanding of your story and of your development leads to an expansion of your understanding about yourself and others. Your story may very well lead you to action. What will this action be? Only you can determine that!
In this course, your personal social awareness will be explored and tested. You will learn to:
Ask essential questions of yourself, raise awareness on the impact of your social and ethical norms on your practice as an educator, recognize your personal network of supports, and expand your skills in empathizing with those who have a different perspective from yours.

Explore and strengthen your fundamental beliefs about relationships and connections to move towards living your best life.
