System Implementation of Social and Emotional Learning

System Implementation of Social and Emotional Learning

The resources in this collection support the Transformative Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Conditions for Thriving document which provides recommended practices and actions that adults across the education system can use to co-create conditions that support Transformative SEL development. Implemented thoughtfully and consistently, and in collaboration with leaders working at all levels of the education system, these practices and actions can support development of equity-focused learning environments in which children, youth, and adults have opportunities to develop and practice T-SEL skills. To be clear, leaders at all levels of the system must work together to create the conditions necessary to support T-SEL development. To learn more about T-SEL Conditions for Thriving, go to the California Department of Education's T-SEL Conditions for Thriving web page.
