Hello Insight:

Elementary SEL

For young people Ages 8 – 11

Young people have a lot to learn — don’t let soft skills get lost in the shuffle.

The elementary ages are a time of intense learning and growth. The more they take in, the more young people ages 8 to 11 are able to understand the world around them. Make the most of this developmental stage with Hello Insight: Elementary SEL. Social and emotional learning, or SEL, is the process of developing the “soft skills” young people need to get along as they grow up: to manage themselves as they engage with the world; build and maintain relationships; and treat setbacks and challenges as learning experiences to prompt growth.

Use Hello Insight: Elementary SEL to ensure young people have the tools to thrive in middle school and beyond.

Capacities

Experiences

Everything that young people see, think, hear, do and feel is fuel for SEL, but a few key types of experiences are especially effective at boosting SEL growth. We use advanced analytics to predict which of those experiences will best promote growth in each group of young people in your program.
