3 Explore a variety of strategies and approaches to bring SEL into your classroom.
In order to learn and thrive, students need to understand and regulate their emotions appropriately. Art educators know that when a student loses control of their anger, sadness, or excitement, their creativity suffers. Through Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), students are able to better equip themselves with strategies to help them be successful as they encounter emotional obstacles. The art classroom is an ideal safe place for SEL to take place. Join Dr. Wynita Harmon in this PRO Pack as she clarifies SEL, the importance of SEL in the art classroom, and SEL strategies you can use in your teaching.
