Module: 4.6.1 Social-Emotional Learning and Enhancing Quality
This session will introduce participants to social-emotional skills and their relationship to the California Quality Standards for Expanded Learning Programs. Participants will be able to articulate what social-emotional skills look like in youth and the California Quality Standards for Expanded Learning Programs that contribute to the skill development in youth.
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 and revised in 2019 to incorporate language to support mental health and wellness.
In this training participants will:
- Strengthen understanding of social-emotional skills that out-of-school time and expanded learning programs support.
- Articulate what social-emotional skills look like in youth.
- Identify the connection between quality standards and social-emotional skills.
