The SEL Blog
Central High School will pilot a new social-emotional learning (SEL) mentoring and train-the-trainer initiative. Students will be at the forefront of these efforts by providing training, mentoring, and modelling to peers. The mentorship component will bridge positive peer relationships between upperclassmen who have demonstrated academic success and a high level of emotional intelligence with underclassmen who have struggled socially, emotionally, academically, and/or behaviorally. Train-the-trainer sessions will give eleventh grade students the opportunity to teach Yale University’s RULER curriculum to ninth graders. Equipping and empowering students with SEL competencies and leadership roles will help infuse SEL more deeply into our school culture.
