The Teacher Self-Check Tool is designed as a formative, rather than an evaluative, tool that can help classroom teachers reflect on their own practice. It walks teachers through the six components of strong SEL Integration and provides “look-fors,” or key elements, for each component. Thinking about these elements can help teachers identify which components they are already prioritizing, determine where they want to focus their efforts, and plan for next steps. The goal of the Teacher Self-Check Tool is to help educators build their own awareness about different ways to approach SEL in the classroom and be even more intentional about providing holistic supports to students.
This tool is intended to be used in conjunction with Transforming Education’s SEL Integration Approach.
