Integrating SEL Across the Curriculum

In this webinar, you’ll learn practical strategies on how to integrate SEL across different content areas so that students have opportunities to strengthen these essential skills in a variety of settings. You’ll also learn how to help students understand how they can transfer academic knowledge into their personal lives in meaningful ways.

Infusing SEL into authentic learning experiences provides students with opportunities to make connections and to apply these essential skills in everyday experiences. Teaching SEL skills and competencies in isolation isn’t nearly as effective as integrating them across the curriculum. In this collaborative session, Britannica Digital Learning facilitators will show teachers how to identify opportunities to successfully integrate SEL and create a crosswalk between SEL and academic objectives. Teachers will learn and apply these new strategies to create SEL-infused activities to use in their own classrooms.
