SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the purposeful development of skills for self-understanding, self-advocacy, building and maintaining relationships, and responsible decision-making. AVID supports students’ social and emotional learning through purposefully developing SEL-related skills, allowing students to pursue their goals and leverage their college and career readiness.

The AVID College and Career Readiness Framework


How SEL Fits into the Framework

What Students Need

  • Rigorous Academic Preparedness: Social and emotional learning supports students’ readiness to learn, allowing them to access and succeed in rigorous coursework.
  • Opportunity Knowledge: Social and emotional learning allows students to set goals, make choices that support their long-term aspirations, and successfully navigate transitions to the next level.
  • Student Agency: Social and emotional learning allows students to believe in and activate their own potential; build relationships; persist through obstacles; and exercise their academic, social, and professional knowledge and skills.

What Educators Do

  • Insist on Rigor: AVID instructional practices, like WICOR®, equip educators to support their students in developing social and emotional competencies, allowing them to succeed in rigorous academic settings.
  • Break Down Barriers: As AVID-trained educators develop SEL-related skills in their students, barriers of access and equity related to student-risk factors are broken down.
  • Align the Work: AVID supports educators in clarifying the connection between social and emotional skills and college and career readiness for all students.
  • Advocate for Students: AVID resources support educators in advocating for students, as they teach them to apply their social and emotional skills to advocate for themselves.
