Continuing our discussion of social and emotional learning, Day Two begins by illustrating how social and emotional learning (SEL) has expanded over the past decade around the world and is being integrated into the very fabric of educational policy and practice. Education practitioners will explore the important question of how His Holiness’ vision of educating the heart could be realized through bringing the teaching of ethics and compassion into schools. The first presentation draws on the experience of teaching and refining an SEL program in the classroom through focusing on emotional literacy, self-regulation, empathy, and compassion, all taught within a framework called “CS3: Core Skills in Three Domains” which include self, others, and community. The concluding presentation discusses the process of implementing what His Holiness calls secular ethics in education, or the Social, Emotional, and Ethical Learning approach in various K-12 settings, as developed at Emory University.
