SEL and Creative Journaling Overview
Social-emotional learning (SEL) connects deeply with what we know is best for our students: building relationships with others and with self. More than ever, our students need support in building their social-emotional skills. But what if we added in the natural connection of the arts? The arts are an avenue towards self-expression, reflection, cooperation, connection, and all of the other components that support SEL.
Elizabeth Peterson, founder of The Inspired Classroom and the developer of SEAL (Social-Emotional Artistic Learning) shares how any teacher can immediately begin to integrate all of the SEL and arts possibilities through Creative Journaling. If you’re nervous to give drawing a try, Elizabeth makes the process simple and shares how to make it meaningful for your students.
