Social Emotional Learning

    • Social and emotional learning is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.


    • In collaboration with Dr. Clay Cook from the University of Minnesota, Lakeville Area Schools has made social and emotional learning a priority. At LinK12, we utilize the Character Strong, an evidence-based social-emotional and character development curriculum.


    • Building future success starts with developing a child’s social, emotional, behavioral and academic aptitude from a young age. An extensive body of rigorous research demonstrates that education promoting social and emotional learning gets results, and that teachers in all academic areas can effectively teach social and emotional skills. School environments that intentionally embed evidence-based social and emotional learning practices and programming show higher levels of academic achievement, positive behavior, self- management, and social competence.


    • We believe social, emotional and behavioral skills can be taught at LinK12. Morning meetings, for example, provide an opportunity for this learning and a positive start to the school day for our elementary students!
