Conversation with Character.org on Character & Social-Emotional Development National Guidelines – 5.27.21
CITRS was honored to host Dr. Arthur Schwartz, President of Character.org, as he spoke to their newly released Character & Social Emotional Development (CSED) guidelines.
CSED was developed in collaboration with leading experts in the fields of both Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and Character Development. Based on the latest science and research, the guidelines were created to provide states, districts, and schools with a way to determine whether or not their programs for the whole child are comprehensive.
The guidelines focus on the four dimensions of character (moral, performance, intellectual and civic character) and the five skills of social-emotional learning (self-awareness, self-management, relationship skills, social awareness, and responsible and ethical decision-making).
