Hey everyone, I’m Elizabeth and I love helping other caring, creative teachers bring the Arts into their classroom!  I especially love doing this through SEAL: Social-Emotional Artistic Learning.

If this topic interests you, you are in the right place.  Talking about SEAL is pretty much my favorite thing to do!

Today, I’m going to talk about how to implement SEL successfully with the Arts into your classroom.  I’m going to focus in on SEAL, but you have to understand that ANY SEL program or method needs to follow this same framework in order to work effectively in your classroom. 


That’s why SEAL is so effective: It is a holistic approach to teaching SEL.


I often get asked what makes SEAL so unique. 

Well, a big part of that is how it helps you implement social-emotional learning into the classroom.  


This is not your run-of-the-mill SEL program.


So, today I’m going to show you something that comes straight out of the SEAL Teacher Training course so you can really get a sense of how to implement social-emotional learning into the classroom – through the Arts.  It’s not just about the amazing integrated lessons, there is an actual method to making it work for so many teachers.


Let’s Take a Closer Look


3 Waves of SEAL


SEAL’s Pathway to Successful Integration of SEL through the Arts!



1. Get the Right Mindset


Inside the SEAL training you will discover what it means to be a SEAL Teacher and explore the power SEAL can have in your classroom.

2. Set up the Methods


There are many ways you can implement SEAL into your teaching.  Inside SEAL, you’ll uncover what will work best for your students, your teaching style, and your teaching schedule.


3. Implement the Integrations that Work


You will take part in numerous activities in visual art, music, dance and drama that integrate into all of CASEL’s social-emotional competencies.  Then, you can fully engage your own students into the lessons that will benefit them the most!

And you know what you’ll get?

  • Students smiling as they connect and work with their peers.
  • A sense of calm and creativity in your classroom that allows your students to feel safe and at ease to learn and take risks.
  • And, YOU will have a unique confidence that comes with being a SEAL Teacher.  You will know that you truly are making a difference in students’ lives every day!
