attachmentClassroom Posters: How Can We Work On These Today?

A member of the Pre-K SEL Committee created posters, based on the SEL competencies, to set social goals in her classroom.  They are used to discuss and set goals on how students can work on the skill for the day.  

Academic & Social Goals

"When planning lessons, we craft two types of goals — academic and social. Having dual goals ensures that both of the things we value — how students are working together and what they are learning — are given equal attention during our teaching." ~ Peter Brunn, The Lesson Planning Handbook: Essential Strategies That Inspire Student Thinking & Learning (p. 49)

We invite you to add a social goal based on the 3 Illinois SEL Standards and/or the Social Emotional Competencies to every academic goal. 

Illinois Classrooms in Action
