CASEL's 'Competencies Wheel' & SEL Impact
CASEL has created a wheel that graphically illustrates the various components of SEL. This wheel demonstrates how classroom curriculum and instruction is only one component of effective Social and Emotional Learning. For SEL to have far reaching impact, SEL curriculum must be consistent schoolwide, as well as reinforced at home. You can read more about the proven impact of SEL on CASEL's site, including: long-term increased academic performance and improved behaviors, 11:1 return on investment, and reduction of poverty levels.
