What does SEL look like at CWSCS? 

In grades K-3, it is doing emotional awareness and emotional vocabulary development—developing the language to talk about the way they feel.

“It’s my belief that education is HEART
work. Furthermore, we must reach our
scholars and their families at a heart and
health level before trying to get things
through anyone’s head. This is the essence of true education — connections before content. Grace before grades. Empathy enveloping everyone! My aim with our SEL work is to develop well-rounded young people who know themselves better, who can regulate themselves under all circumstances, and who will always be ready to advocate for themselves and others.”
-Dwayne Reed

 In grades 4 and 5, it is discussing ideas around citizenship: What does it mean to be a good friend? What does it mean to be a good person? How do we address conflicts and disagreements? 

In grades 6-8, it is growing in social justice awareness, discussing such questions as What is justice? and What is the difference between a right and a privilege?
