Use critical thinking techniques to explore traits that align with social-emotional learning (SEL) for individuals and school culture. By incorporating this type of character education, students and educators can use higher-order thinking in daily classroom activities. This curriculum also provides an opportunity to create a culture where character traits are thoughtfully considered and applied to students’ lives. As these critical thinking skills are practiced within character education, SEL goals can be achieved.
