What SEL skills does Maryland recommend educators prioritize?

Maryland’s Social Foundations Framework highlights two key domains of focus for young learners:

  • Social Emotional Regulation
  • Approaches Toward Learning/Executive Functioning

How can districts become leaders in SEL? 

We’ve put together a sample alignment guide to show how seamlessly the Maryland SEL guidelines align to Move This World’s curriculum objectives. A school or district-wide social and emotional learning curriculum can support all students, staff, and families in your community. Additionally, a Tier 1 approach to SEL helps provide a common language around social and emotional skills so that students, staff, and families can all participate in creating a positive school culture.
