Violence, bullying, mental illness and inclusion issues are prevalent in schools, which is why SEL has become a pressing topic. Frameworks exist to define SEL and categorize SE competencies, but there's a lack of tools to easily develop and assess them. Learn how you can use Classcraft to develop and assess SE competencies based on the CASEL framework for SEL.
