Although Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Day has passed, the topic remains of interest year-round. The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) hosted a webinar called Cut the Jargon: What We Actually Want for All Students. The webinar commemorated SEL Day and educated attendees about SEL. One of the takeaways from the webinar is that SEL can happen inside and outside of the classroom.
