Ignite Student Growth Across 5 Key SEL Competencies
ACT | Mawi Learning’s SEL framework builds upon five core SEL competencies that drive positive gains in academic success and student well-being: Turbo, Relationships, Mindset, Skill and Voice.
5 SEL Competencies
Students who hit their Turbo Button activate their inner sense of agency. This empowers students to make strides towards healthy goals — both academic and personal.
Students with strong relationships build a network of peers, adults, and mentors. They know they belong and have a strong support team.
Students with growth mindsets know they can improve their skills and abilities with effort. They seek out new challenges and pursue them with confidence.
Students with strong skills have the strategies, habits and tools to learn and succeed. They know how to handle personal and academic stress — and make choices that keep them healthy, strong, and productive.
Students with strong voices know that their strengths and ideas matter. They become leaders at home and at school — and pursue their passions with confidence.
