Social-Emotional Learning

Social-Emotional Growth

Social-emotional learning (SEL) is an essential component of every child’s education and is vital for activating humans’ innate capacity to form social connections and empathy. 

SEL is a framework for helping students develop the skills for how they interact with others, manage their own emotions and behaviors, and develop into confident, productive, and empathetic individuals.

Assessments are emailed to individual students or to a whole class with one click.

Assessment results are available on-line via the portal as they are received.

“Changing Perspectives has really helped me find appropriate SEL materials and resources fairly quickly and easily. It’s really nice to be able to log into Changing Perspectives, do a quick search and find multiple resources, be able to pick and choose and then apply it really quickly. That’s been unique, because there aren’t many resources like that out there.”
