WHAT IS SEL?
SEL includes the processes through which
children and adults acquire and effectively
apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills
necessary to understand and manage
emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel
and show empathy for others, establish and
maintain positive relationships, and make
responsible decisions.

SO WHAT IS SEL?
SEL is based on the understanding that the
best learning emerges in the context of
supportive relationships that make learning
challenging, engaging and meaningful.

SO WHAT IS SEL?

WHAT IS ALTRUISM?
Altruism is when we act to promote someone else’s
welfare, even at a risk or cost to ourselves. Though
some believe that humans are fundamentally selfinterested, recent research suggests otherwise:
Studies have found that people’s first impulse is to
cooperate rather than compete; that toddlers
spontaneously help people in need out of a genuine
concern for their welfare; and that even non-human
primates display altruism.
TEACH & MODEL THE BEHAVIORS
THAT WE WANT TO SEE
If we want to see it,
we have to teach it,
model it,
give opportunities to experience it.
TEACH & MODEL THE BEHAVIORS
THAT WE WANT TO SEE
How can they be “random” acts of
kindness if you’re making us do them?

WHY IS THIS PRO-KINDNESS STUFF SO
IMPORTANT TO SCHOOL SAFETY?
“Men hate each other because they fear each other,
and they fear each other because
they don't know each other,
and they don't know each other because
they are often separated from each other.”
--Martin Luther King Jr.
