The Importance of Social-Emotional Learning for Academic Development

Students with well-developed social emotional skills spend more time on task and more time helping others, resulting in a decrease in negative behavior and significant increases in learning opportunities and academic achievement. The key elements of these social emotional skills are: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. A deficit in any of these skills can lead to behavior and emotional difficulties and less involvement in academics.

Working Together

Fully aligned with the CASEL framework, the SSIS™ SEL edition provides evidence-based tools to assess and teach skills in each of the five SEL domains as well as the three key academic competencies established in the original Social Skills Improvement System:

  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management
  • Social awareness
  • Relationship skills
  • Responsible decision making
  • Motivation to learn
  • Reading skills
  • Mathematics skills
