- 2013 CASEL Guide
CASEL has released the 2013 CASEL Guide, the first comprehensive, national review of programs for social and emotional learning since we published Safe and Sound nearly a decade ago.
Visit our new CASEL Guide section to learn about the report and access enhanced features only available online.
Social and emotional learning is a process for helping children and even adults develop the fundamental skills for life effectiveness.
These are the skills we all need to handle ourselves, our relationships, and our work, effectively and ethically.
See how states have addressed social and emotional goals in their learning standards in preschool through high school.
We believe that social and emotional learning should be a central focus of districts’ efforts to ensure high-quality education for all students, and we are committed to working with districts to make this possible.
