Get Started

Child development experts are discovering that one key to school success is non-academic skills, like executive function (EF) and social-emotional learning (SEL). Together, these skills help students pay attention, control their emotions, follow classroom rules, and get along with others – all things that are important for learning!

Because EF and SEL are so closely related, focusing on one or the other in the classroom doesn’t make sense. Instead, we can build classroom content and curricula that promotes both of these skills, together.

After this course, you will be able to use your knowledge of EF and SEL skills to decide how to integrate SEL and EF-improving activities into your classroom to support learning and development in all of your students.


Key ideas:

  1. Understand basic EF development
  2. Understand SEL skills and their development
  3. Understand the relationship between EF and SEL
  4. Explore examples of effective SEL interventions and curricula
  5. Build strategies for addressing EF and SEL in the classroom
  6. Understand how teacher self-care and stress management can improve personal as well as classroom-level outcomes.

This course includes formative assessments after each module as well as a final assessment upon completion of all content. Get started by clicking on Module 1: Understanding Social Emotional Learning below!
