Daily SEL Lesson – Mindset Matters

Welcome back to the CLS Daily SEL lesson. Each day, we will provide a new social-emotional learning lesson designed to build emotional intelligence and resilience. There will be a lesson for elementary students and a lesson for secondary students that include media (videos, audios, or text) and simple step-by-step instructions.

We hope that the lessons are helpful to you and your students.
