Webinar Series—SEL Competencies: What They Are, and How to Assess and Address Them

Along with 17 other states, Michigan has established SEL standards indicating the social and emotional competencies students should know and be able to demonstrate at different grade levels. But what are these competencies? What do the look like in real life? Why do they matter? And how can educators assess and address those competencies, but formally and informally? In this webinar series, Clark McKown, President of xSEL Labs, will describe social and emotional competencies, explore what it looks like and why it matters, and share formal and informal methods educators can use to assess and support the development of those competencies. Each webinar will cover a different competence.
