CASEL has created a SEL framework for schools to use. It is comprised of 5 core competencies: self awareness, self management, responsible decision making, relationship skills, and social awareness. This week we will focus on responsible decision making. According to CASEL it is defined as:
“The ability to make constructive choices about personal behavior and social interactions based on ethical standards, safety concerns, and social norms. The realistic evaluation of consequences of various actions, and a consideration of the well-being of oneself and others.”
Linked is an article on incorporating responsible decision making into your classrooms.
Reflect upon how you can provide your students with a variety of options for submitting assignments.
