Connecting with Others: Social Engagement
Being an active participant in a community is a vital aspect of social and emotional learning. It allows people to feel that they can be a driving force for social change in their communities while also allowing them to meet people from different backgrounds. Children can engage in their communities in a variety of ways, including volunteering their time to help a cause and participating in marches or protests. Participating in their community also gives them a chance to practice other social and emotional learning skills, such as effective communication and the importance of building strong relationships. This interactive eBook includes quizzes, video, profiles of key figures and organizations, and actor-narrated audio which imparts the motivation that young learners need to engage and build social connections.
