Social, Emotional, Learning (SEL)
The goal of last Friday’s SEL session focused on communication skills and community building. The session began with the discussion topic, “What changes when people communicate over texts, versus talking? Is technology making our communication better, or worse?” The students were asked to take a stack of paper and paperclips and build the tallest tower that they could. The tower was to stand on its own for at least 3 seconds. Students could not use tape, gum, or staples. Share ideas and communicate with each other was the goal.
