A Brief Introduction to Social Emotional Learning

We use the term Social Emotional Learning (SEL) frequently, but what does it mean? What is and is not SEL?

Elizabeth Pope

I am a former elementary general education and special education resource classroom teacher and a graduate of the University of Arizona’s, Educational Psychology Ph.D. program. As an Assistant Professor of Practice in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Arizona, I work primarily with undergraduate students teaching the Childhood and Adolescent Development and Psychological Measurements in Education courses. My research focuses on teacher-student relationships and understanding student experiences of failure with the goal of creating interventions that will result in healthy,successful experiences for all learners.
