Similarly, students also encounter their own challenges and must learn to self-manage, but for them, this skill is best learned through empowerment. According to CASEL’s骨架, self- management is “the ability to regulate one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors effectively in different situations. This includes managing stress, controlling impulses, motivating oneself, and setting and working toward achieving personal and academic goals.”1

但这可能是谈何容易。而这正是Gale eBookssocial and emotional (SEL) student collections come in.


For younger students, learning to manage different emotions and thoughts can be a difficult task to achieve, especially if they don’t understand what they’re feeling. Helping students recognize and respond to feelings in a healthy way is the first step towardlearning self-awareness, another of CASEL’s core competencies. Once students can grasp their feelings, the next step is to learn how handle them. Goal setting helps develop a growth mindset and build character, but students need to be guided on how to choose goals, set them, and reflect on them.
