Social Emotional Learning

Social emotional learning (SEL) is a methodology that helps students of all ages to better comprehend their emotions, to feel those emotions fully, and demonstrate empathy for others. These learned behaviors are then used to help students make positive, responsible decisions; create frameworks to achieve their goals, and build positive relationships with others. 

Second Step 

We are excited to be using the social-emotional learning program at Tallmadge Elementary and Middle called Second Step.  The Second Step Program is a research-based social-emotional curriculum that aligns to academic standards.  Classroom lessons are taught by the classroom teacher and reinforced by our school counselors. The four key concepts taught and practiced at the elementary school are: Growth Mindset & Goal setting, Emotion Management, Empathy & Kindness and Problem Solving.  At the middle school school the four key concepts are:  Mindset & Goals,  Recognizing Bullying & Harassment, Thoughts, Emotions & Decisions, and Managing Relationships & Social Conflict.  Development of these important skills leads to better academic performance, the development of positive relations, and increased resilience and motivation.
