“Engaging Schools believes that a foundational approach to implementing SEL in high schools is embedding SEL instruction and support into every classroom. This approach describes how high school teachers can systematically integrate SEL skills into their teaching practice in order to develop students’ cognitive, social, and emotional competencies. It also creates a more equitable and engaging environment where meaningful learning and social experiences take place.”
