The SEL Solution

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) has the power to transform individuals, classrooms, and communities. Research shows that a socially-emotionally supportive setting is the solution to increasing student achievement. The SEL Solution helps students and adults master critical social-emotional skills, encourages student leadership, provides effective and compassionate behavior management strategies, and increases student success.

Based on William Glasser’s Choice Theory, the book shows educators how to integrate lessons on empathy, cooperation, self-regulation, leadership, and a range of other social-emotional learning topics into the school day and into social studies and language arts curriculum. This book provides dozens of strategies that are classroom tested and proven successful. Both fun and easy-to-use, these lessons and activities provide everything needed to create a positive school culture.

For use by teachers, counselors, coaches, principals, and other educators, the strategies in this book provide a plan for engaging the whole school community in identifying, celebrating, and sustaining its positive values. Digital content includes customizable forms from the book and a PDF presentation for professional development.
