Social-emotional learning (SEL) is a major component of school curricula in many countries today. Proponents have also conceptualized it as part of school health. In this article, we review historical antecedents, examine the reasons for the impact of social-emotional learning, and discuss major trends in SEL pedagogy, including decision making, safety, and school health. Finally, we suggest a possible addition to the SEL toolbox, in the form of the Personal Moral Compass, to further enhance its potency.
