This section of the website is to help students understand the School and Districts program of Social Emotional Learning (SEL).
What is Social Emotional Learning?
Social and emotional skills are critical to being a successful productive part of the community. In order to be College and Career ready you the student must be aware of the social needs of people around and yourself. Good friends, family and social life are components to a healthy living. The emotional control you learn while growing up doesn't stop at graduation but continues through out your life. Many risky behaviors can be prevented or reduced when efforts are practiced to develop and grow your social and emotional skills. At Chatsworth Charter High School your SEL success can best be achieved through effective classroom instruction, student engagement in positive activities in and out of the classroom, and broad parent and community involvement in program planning, implementation, and evaluation.
LAUSD and CCHS have four focus areas for SEL:
- GROWTH MINDSET: The belief that one’s abilities can grow with effort.
- SELF-EFFICACY: The belief in one’s own ability to succeed in achieving an outcome or reaching a goal.
- SELF-MANAGEMENT: The ability to regulate one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors effectively in different situations.
- SOCIAL AWARENESS: The ability to take the perspective of and empathize with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to understand social and ethical norms for behavior, and to recognize family, school, and community resources and supports.
This year through the student experience survey CCHS SEL team will focus on Self-Awareness.
Stay tuned in during class announcements, school news broadcasts and full class assemblies for more information.
