Acellus for Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

The Importance of Social and Emotional Well-being


Today's educators are tasked with the responsibility of engaging students in learning; helping them perform academically, while also creating an environment of positive thoughts and behaviors. The need for emotional and social education has never been greater, and much of the responsibility falls on educators to teach these important principles. Research shows that social and emotional learning improves student achievement by an average of 11 percentile points, and also significantly improves student attitudes and behavior, while reducing depression and stress (Durlak et al., 2011). Along with the need for Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the need to build healthy living habits that will have long lasting impacts on their happiness and well-being.

Acellus has become involved in the mission of providing schools with effective courseware that covers these important, yet sometimes difficult topics.

The Acellus Social Emotional Learning (SEL) courses focus on the basic social and emotional concepts that every child needs – from getting along with others to self-esteem, from learning to be aware of the feelings of others to dealing with insensitive people or emotionally challenging situations. The Acellus SEL courses take on important issues in students' lives, helping them cultivate healthy relationships, a caring attitude, along with discovering the value of one's overall well-being and physical health. Acellus SEL inspires positivity, which will empower students to face the day-to-day challenges they will encounter in the real world. Separate courses have been developed for the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

Crisis Intervention Lessons

When a student is faced with a crisis, timely and targeted intervention is critical.

Acellus has developed customized Crisis Intervention Lessons that focus on specific challenging issues, such as divorce, death of a loved one, bullying, natural disasters, and many more. The appropriate lessons can be selected by the student, or prescribed by a teacher or parent. When a Crisis Intervention lesson is assigned to a student, a companion lesson for parents is also provided via the Parent Interface, along with one for teachers.
