There is a national push to implement Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) into the classroom. While implementation of SEL is mainly limited to primary school, explicit practices in secondary classrooms are sparse while implementation in secondary classrooms is even more limited. Our society continues to evolve and change while our education system stays the same. SEL offers an opportunity for our schools to adapt to fit our changing society. SEL practices I have found that can be implemented into Secondary Math classrooms fit into the themes of developing math identity, working with emotions while doing mathematics, developing critical math thinking, and social practices and relationship building through mathematics. This project aims to analyze the different SEL practices and how they can be implemented into the school.
