The Waldorf School at Moraine Farm blog -- Social and Emotional Learning, a New Model for Learning -- discusses the important facets of social emotional learning and the school's decision to create a core teaching position for their new SEL ‘CARE’ class.
"In the weekly course, students work with themes such as Communication, Gratitude, Presence, and Creativity. Lessons have aspects of story, art, movement, and service as part of the regular rhythm of each 45-minute period. The last class period of each month is dedicated to an age-appropriate yoga and meditation practice that will help to integrate the learning that developed over the course of the month."
The article goes on to explore specifics of the new program and the research supporting programming around social emotional learning.
