CASEL Recognizes Facing History
The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) has recognized Facing History as one of only nine middle or high school SEL programs that has a proven impact on students, including increased empathy or more prosocial behavior. CASEL has also recognized Facing History for integrating issues of race/ethnicity into regular social studies and language arts instruction in its analysis of how to integrate SEL and issues of equity.
