• What is Social and Emotional Learning?
    Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
    Bower Elementary's General Education teachers are using Second Step to teach Social Emotional Learning.
