IFSEL’s approach to Check-In offers a simple and profound practice that activates self- and group-awareness and is the foundation for all social and emotional learning.

The term “check-in” is now quite a popular term referring to the process of tuning in to ourselves and our feelings. Check-in provides an opportunity for each individual to take an “emotional inventory”. When students are ready and feel safe to share with a group, check-in can help them build social awareness and provide a great deal of empathy amongst students. Consistent practice with this tool of check-in provides individual students with a sense of calm and control while assisting the entire group in centering, focusing, and understanding each other.
