Fostering relationship building and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is imperative at the start (and throughout) the school year. It provides students and teachers with an opportunity to learn about each other and create positive relationships.
In a blog post featured on Getting Smart, Rachelle Denè Poth shares 4 tools and strategies to help students to develop SEL skills and build community, to not only positively impact their learning potential, but to also best prepare them for their future.
"Using Tract can also help to promote the development of social-emotional learning skills as students become self-aware as they design their own project and track growth, build social awareness as they learn from their peers, and build relationships during the learning process."
