Middle schoolers are entering a critical period in their lives, becoming more independent, and figuring out who they are and what they believe in. They are navigating complex peer relationships and learning how to resolve conflicts. At this age, they can make decisions with intention and reflect on the consequences.
An effective social-emotional learning curriculum for middle school considers these unique developmental needs and ensures that students develop self-awareness as they find real-world solutions to the challenges they encounter.
The five SEL competencies developed by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) are crucial to students’ learning and development.
