Unpacking the CASEL Framework in SEL & Leadership Pilot Program

The NYC DOE Supportive Environment Framework for Great Schools shares a common vision of fostering students’ social and emotional development to create more equitable learning environments and outcomes. Our SEL & Leadership Pilot Program is closely aligned with CASEL’s integrated framework. This blog post unpacks how the pilot program’s curriculum framework and activities respond to each competency in the CASEL’s framework. 

 

The CASEL framework has five competencies: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making.

1. Self-awareness

Activities we used to develop this competency in students this Fall:

 

2. Self-management

 

Activities we have used to develop this competency in students this Fall:

 

3. Responsible Decision-making

Activities we used to develop this competency in students this Fall:

 

4. Relationship Skills

Activities we used to develop this competency in students this Fall:

 

5. Social Awareness

Activities we have used to develop this competency in students:

 

As shown, we have built in more activities in the first three competencies (Self-Awareness, Self-Management and Responsible Decision-Making) so far because “Know Yourself As a Leader” and “Choose Yourself To Be a Leader” are two core themes of our curriculum in this Fall. By knowing yourself better, you understand your emotional patterns and strengths. You are aware of the insights given by your emotions and strengths and you learn how to make wise choices based on them.

We will be designing more activities aligned with the last two competencies in the Spring as we dive deeper into “Choose Yourself To Be a Leader” and march into our last but not least theme – “Give Yourself As a Leader”.
