Integrate the ARTs with SEL – Teach SEAL!
What is SEAL?
SEAL stands for Social-Emotional Artistic Learning
SEAL is a proactive approach to explicitly teach social-emotional skills through the ARTS.
It is the latest branch of arts integration as it couples the naturally differentiating, highly engaging and emotionally charged power of the arts with the high need of developing social-emotional competencies.
We know that Arts Integration is an amazing way to engage our students in authentic learning experiences. Now, you can learn how to integrate them with Social-Emotional Learning through SEAL!
