COMPETENCIES

The Fostering Growth and Well Being pathway includes adult learning competencies that focus on developing students’ social and emotional skills.

This pathway focuses on learning how to embed the development of social and emotional skills in curriculum, instruction and school programs.

I can empower learners to cultivate self-awareness: the ability to accurately recognize one’s own emotions, thoughts, and values and how they influence behavior and assess one’s strengths and limitations, with a well-grounded sense of confidence, optimism, and a “growth mindset.”
