Social Emotional Learning Part XI

Engagement Description


The better children become at predicting how their actions influence others, the more informed their choices may become. Through this process of social-emotional development, children also need models to help them learn to take responsibility for their thoughts, feelings, and actions. This represents the CASEL core competency of Responsible Decision Making.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn how children come to appreciate the consequences of their actions.
  2. Appreciate how modeling this PSEL hastens the learning process.
  3. Consider the implications of continuing to blame and externalize responsibility.
