Designed to help students develop socially and emotionally into happy, responsible, productive adults, the Social Emotional Learning – Elementary course begins by discussing students’ personal characteristics, strengths, and values, and how important it is that they remain true to their core values. Students explore how they can use the choices they make each day to control their lives, and they consider the concept that there are boundaries that they need to respect and responsibilities they need to shoulder.
They learn what it means to be inspired, and that being inspired is a choice they make. They discuss how to be considerate and respectful, and how their attitudes shape their successes. They learn how developing good personal hygiene and a regular daily schedule can improve their lives.
