Social and Emotional Learning


This course is for teachers and parents and anyone involved in helping young people with their learning. The course covers the basics of Social and Emotional Learning- what it is; why it is important in schools and in the home today. It also provides information on the concept of Emotional Intelligence and how it affects the learning and basic functioning.

Participants will understand the connection between emotions and learning and how behavior patterns develop and therefore how to remove the emotional blocks to learning. This combines some basic aspects of counseling in the classroom and in the home, but it goes beyond that. Focus will be on creating a supportive, nurturing, non-threatening environment to enhance learning.


The students will:

  • Understand the process of learning- how information is carried to the brain and how the brain responds.
  • Understand how emotions affect this process of learning.
  • Explore ways of improving his/her methods of teaching by enhancing the emotional climate of the learning environment.
  • Explore ways of improving the social and emotional climate in the home and the parenting process.


The students will complete a brief essay- type assignment at the end of each lesson. These will be reviewed by me. Students acquiring an overall percentage of 70 and above will be considered to have passed the course.
