Smart Goal During the 2012-2013 school year, the Director of Student Services will develop a systematic, coordinated approach for addressing students’ social, emotional and behavioral learning needs as measured by the completion of action plan activities.
Social Emotional Learning A definition of Social Emotional Learning: Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which we learn to recognize and manage emotions, care about others, make good decisions, behave ethically and responsibly, develop positive relationships, and avoid negative behaviors.
Illinois Learning Standards (SEL) The standards describe the content and skills for students in grades K - 12 for social and emotional learning. Each standard includes five benchmark levels that describe what students should know and be able to do K-12 . These standards build on the Illinois Social/Emotional Development Standards of the Illinois Early Learning Standards. These standards have been developed in accordance with Section 15(a) of Public Act 93-0495. This Act calls upon the Illinois State Board of Education to "develop and implement a plan to incorporate social and emotional development standards as part of the Illinois Learning Standards."
ISBE Social/Emotional Learning Goals Goal 1 - Develop self-awareness and self- management skills to achieve school and life success. Goal 2 - Use social-awareness and interpersonal skills to establish and maintain positive relationships. Goal 3 - Demonstrate decision-making skills and responsible behaviors in personal, school, and community contexts.
