Introducing Social-Emotional Artistic Learning.

Join The Inspired Classroom on the journey to learn about  SEAL!  Social-Emotional Artistic Learning

For many years now, I have been exploring how arts integration strategies can apply to CASEL’s SEL  competencies.  They are a natural combination!

As one of my art colleagues and Repeater Retreater, Kate Bernardoni, put it once,

Art IS SEL!”

Nothing could be more true.  When we are teaching students about arts skills and how to apply them to their lives, we are teaching them Self-Awareness.  When listening to music to help regulate our emotions, we are practicing Self-Management.  Student interaction with others in drama-inspired activities promotes the use of Social-Awareness.  And when we move and dance with one another, we build Relationship Skills.  And throughout, we work on Making Responsible Decisions: for ourselves and with others.

The idea behind introducing Social-Emotional Artistic Learning is that we can use arts integration strategies specifically to teach, build and practice social-emotional learning competencies. As with any true arts integration, we will teach arts standards at the same time that we teach SEL competencies.

SEAL combines two amazing approaches to learning!

Arts Integration + Social-Emotional Learning = SEAL

As you may already know, the arts are powerful for learning as they can reach us at our own personal level of understanding while expanding our understanding of other content. That’s why arts integration strategies are so successful. Now, we are ready to learn ways arts integration can develop our learning about our social-emotional well-being.

We at The Inspired Classroom understand that our students need to build Social-Emotional skills.  That’s why we have taken on the exciting path of exploring all things SEAL!
