CASEL has created a SEL framework for schools to use in supporting their students. It is comprised of 5 core competencies: self awareness, self management, responsible decision making, relationship skills, and social awareness. This week's focus will be on self awareness. According to CASEL it self-awareness is defined as:
“The ability to accurately recognize one’s own emotions, thoughts, and values and how they influence behavior. The ability to accurately assess one’s strengths and limitations, with a well-grounded sense of confidence, optimism, and a 'growth mindset.'"
