4. Social Awareness

I care about and work with people like me and people different from me. I understand and respect their thoughts, feelings and points of view.

  • What do I do to work well with people like me and people different from me?
  • How can I understand others and respect where they are coming from?
  • What am I doing to make my school community a better place?

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is a process through which children and adults develop the fundamental skills for life effectiveness.  We need SEL skills for ourselves, our relationships, and our work. 

In GISD, we believe that strengthening these skills enhances our ability to effectively and ethicany connect across race, class, culture, language, gender identity, sexual orientation, learning needs, and age.
