Staying Centered with Flexible SEL Resources 

Explore a variety of  K-12 resources and curated content collections in the Social-Emotional Learning Center, designed to keep social-emotional connection at the heart of every learning experience. 

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is such an important area of focus in education because of its unique power to enhance all other subject areas indirectly. By better understanding and managing emotions, both educators and students are more engaged in the process of learning. 

Being centered in our emotions is necessary for us to truly listen to others and effectively express ourselves. By integrating social-emotional competencies into core curriculum, educators are helping students become better learners and better people. 

Discovery Education’s no-cost, transdisciplinary SEL resources help anchor classrooms in empathy while enabling students to set and achieve positive goals, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
