Research has shown the benefits of social and emotional learning (SEL) include improved academic achievement, better emotional well-being, and long-term student success. But how can teachers incorporate SEL in an already crowded school day?

The science classroom can provide some surprising ways to teach students social and emotional skills across grades K-12.

In this 20-minute Ed Talk, an educator and professional learning consultant will share four strategies for integrating SEL into science instruction, helping students at any grade level to develop both academically and emotionally.

Topics will include:

  • The five core SEL competencies: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making
  • Using hands-on science activities that require collaboration and problem-solving to build SEL skills
  • Leveraging tools and research from the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) to enhance SEL initiatives
  • Adopting science standards that promote science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and crosscutting concepts to foster soft skills development
