Social Emotional Learning

Social-emotional learning (SEL) is a huge part of outdoor school. This year, it's more important than ever. Students are adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic and experiencing many other challenges. We can offer them support by intentionally building social-emotional learning opportunities into outdoor school, no matter what form outdoor school takes. It is essential that we recognize the link between SEL and equity as we do this work. In our recorded SEL webinar, you can learn more about this link between SEL and equity as well as how equity relates to each individual SEL competency. In "Social-Emotional Learning at Outdoor School in 2020-2021", a companion document to the webinar, you can find additional strategies and tools for supporting students and adults at outdoor school this year.
