Social Emotional Learning topics covered in Health/SEL class: 

Self-Awareness Knowing what we are feeling in the moment: having a realistic assessment of our own abilities and a well-grounded sense of self-confidence. 

Self-Management Handling our emotions so they facilitate rather than interfere with the task at hand; being conscientious and delaying gratification to pursue goals;        persevering in the face of setbacks and frustrations. 

Social Awareness Understanding what others are feeling; being able to take their perspective; appreciating and interacting positively with diverse groups.
