Daily SEL Lessons

Social-emotional learning has always been a large part of our everyday lessons. This is certainly still evident today. The taxonomy under student development, it emphasizes the need to teach these emotional skills. These skills will be the foundation of their self-determination. This website has multiple lessons around SEL topics. Most of the lessons come with a video and/or a resource that can be used in the lesson. There are also discussion questions to be used in the lessons. Each lesson is divided into an elementary lesson and a secondary lesson in order to reach learners of all ages.

Taxonomy Connection- Student-Focused Planning- IEP Development
You can never have enough Age Appropriate Transition Assessments (AATA). This is a good one from NTACT. There are 9 sections of questions to gain valuable information about a student. The questions are written in a way that the student can answer themself or an adult can answer about the student. Having the questions divided into sections allow for the assessment to be completed over time and not in one sitting, depending on the student. Teams can also just specific sections, depending on their assessment planning, and the information they want to learn about the student.
