The purpose of this research is to identify the benefits of SEL and to explore ways to implement SEL curriculum into the classroom. This research aims to answer the following questions: (1) What are the benefits of teaching SEL in elementary classrooms for students?; (2) How can SEL be integrated into the classrooms on a daily basis? Research methods include reviewing scholarly literature and reviewing current SEL programs in Marin County.
