Cognitive Frameworks in SEL

Cognitive Frameworks in SEL

There are several major cognitive functions required for successful development and participation in social/emotional learning. Learn what they are, how they impact each other, and what it looks like in the classroom, so we can better remove barriers, provide supports, and teach skills in these areas.

When we understand the role of cognitive functions in learning/behaviors, we can better understand these deficits as lagging skills instead of laziness, bad choices, or opposition. Then, we’ll build your toolbox of practical and evidence based classroom strategies that are brain based to better help students with social/emotional challenges.
