Small Group SEL Lesson: Learning to Change Your Behavior
Self-Regulation focuses on managing our emotions and behavior so we can make positive choices. Students are much more likely to use learned strategies and make changes in their behavior if they predict the challenges they will experience and make a plan to manage them. Through character stories with familiar problems, students will spot where situations get worse and help a character make a plan to change. They will then do the same for themselves.
