SEL Campus Wide

Social and Emotional Learning can be seen in many ways across a campus.  It may be a teacher teaching a lesson to the whole class on managing anxiety, a student helping another student after a fall on the playground, or a whole campus activity promoting SEL.  As we visited campuses in AISD, we have seen many creative ways to celebrate SEL campus wide. The following images are a few of the stellar examples we have seen so far this year.

Your ideas inspire other educators.  Send us pictures of what you have done to promote SEL campus wide to: selaustin@gmail.com

Linder Learner's Creed - all read daily over the PA

Here’s a way to start off your morning right! At Linder Elementary they use  positive self-talk to set daily goals in this Learners’ Creed.  It can be heard campus wide over the PA each morning.
