Module: 4.6.1 Social-Emotional Learning, Building Character and Enhancing Quality
This module was developed as part of the Expanded Learning 360/365 project and revised in 2016 to specific language, examples and tips for summer and year-round learning programs.
This session will introduce participants to social-emotional and character skills and their relationship to the California Quality Standards for Expanded Learning Programs. Participants will be able to articulate what social-emotional and character skills look like in youth and the California Quality Standards for Expanded Learning Programs that contribute to the skill development in youth.
In this training participants will:
- Strengthen understanding of social-emotional and character skills that out-of-school time and expanded learning programs support.
- Articulate what social-emotional and character skills look like in youth.
- Identify the connection between quality standards and social-emotional and character skills.
