Description

Students are heading back to school across America after a challenging few years which brought major changes to young people’s lives. As parents and educators have complex conversations about the future of education, one learning framework increasingly implemented in schools aims to support students both inside and outside the classroom. It’s called social emotional learning, or SEL, and it aims to equip students not just with reading and math skills, but with social and emotional tools to thrive in today’s world. In Building Classroom Connections, from TODAY and sponsored by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, we dive into just what SEL looks like in practice and explore whether this framework is the future of education.

In this episode of Building Classroom Connections, from TODAY and sponsored by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, we speak with students and educators about how SEL affects their experiences at school and outside the classroom.
