SEL is frequently taught in schools, but how can educators embrace it in their own lives? In this helpful guidebook, Wendy Turner demonstrates the importance of social emotional learning being embraced, understood, and modeled by all members of the learning community. First, she offers tools to increase your self-awareness, including mindset, identity and culture, strengths, and core values. Second, she shows what self-management is and why it matters in helping everyone manage complex emotions in myriad ways. Then, she explains what empathy is and is not, and how it pertains to social issues, identity, culture, and global perspective. Next, she discusses relationships—how we can foster successful relationships with everyday tools to ignite and support positive connections. And finally, she shows how to synthesize our skills, improving decision making and modeling this for our students. Throughout each chapter, she provides creative, easy-to-implement ideas, stories, and reflection questions so you can make the ideas your own, enabling you to authentically grow and thrive on your personal and professional path.
