Social-Emotional Learning: Integrating SEL within MTSS

Please note: The microlearning experience is being hosted by Arist where an account creation will be required.

It can be overwhelming for administrators and educators to know which initiatives to focus on and how to implement them in schools and classrooms. In this course, you will learn about the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) in Michigan and why it is important to integrate SEL into that framework. Through examples and resources, you will focus on reviewing what embedding SEL can look like in your school, learning what the essential components of MTSS are, and how to integrate various initiatives within an organized framework that supports effective learner outcomes.

In this course, you will:

  • Review CASEL’s Conceptual Model,
  • Describe the five essential components of an MTSS as defined by the MDE MTSS Practice Profile,
  • Explore how MTSS and SEL are tied into other initiatives (e.g., PBIS, Trauma-Informed, Student Mental Health, etc), and
  • Describe how to integrate SEL along with other school-wide initiatives (i.e. PBIS) into the MTSS framework.

This course is offered in partnership with GEERS. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy policy.
