At Center for Responsive Schools, we believe that teaching social and emotional learning (SEL) competencies is as important as teaching academic competencies. In all of our programming, services, and products, we focus on five social and emotional competencies—cooperation, assertiveness, responsibility, empathy, and self-control (C.A.R.E.S.)—and we emphasize helping students build these competencies in a safe, joyful, engaging learning environment that is developmentally responsive to their strengths and needs.
The C.A.R.E.S. competencies have served as a strong foundation for educators, students, and families for nearly 40 years, and throughout the challenges of the last year they have fostered hope, encouragement, and resilience. In recognition of this #SELday, we take time to specially acknowledge and celebrate the efforts of school and home communities to equip each young person with the SEL competencies they need for success in school and in life.
Join CRS in gratitude for those who help others build strong social-emotional skill sets, as we celebrate #SELday —
