Virtual Field Trip

Bringing SEL to Life:
Skills for the Classroom and Beyond

 

Through the eyes of their peers, we will introduce students to the key pillars of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, social awareness, relationship skills. Student viewers will meet other real-life students who share a pledge called "Words to Live By." Viewers will follow these students throughout their day as they explain and model how the words of the pledge help them better understand themselves, control their actions, strengthen their relationships, and use their wings to soar!
