Self-awareness, or the ability to effectively understand one’s emotions and thoughts, as well as their impact on behavior, entails accurately analyzing one’s strengths and limitations and having a well-grounded sense of confidence and optimism. High self-awareness is demonstrated by persons who are able to detect their feelings, emotional patterns, and tendencies, as well as how to generate and use emotions like joy and enthusiasm to stimulate learning in themselves and others.


Self-management refers to the ability to effectively control one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a variety of settings. This encompasses stress management, impulsive control, motivation, and creating and working toward personal and academic objectives.


Self-assessment allows you as a teacher to choose ways and content that are inclusive of all student identities, ethnicities, and abilities. Thanks to GROWE, you’ll discover new and innovative methods, that add to the ones you already use, to create inclusive communities in your classroom. Healthy learning settings are the cornerstone of healthy societies.

Social awareness

Social awareness is the ability to comprehend and empathize with people from other origins and cultures, as well as the ability to recognize family, school, and community resources and supports. Teachers should assist pupils in developing social awareness by:

  • Across varied groups, intentional teaching and modelling of how to build and maintain healthy interactions and relationships.
  • Embracing variety and considering the viewpoints of others who are not like oneself
  • Empathy for others who are similar to and different from oneself
  • Listening intently to others’ opinions, politely quoting others’ thoughts, and collaborating with others who are not like you.

Social awareness aids in the development of emotional intelligence in students and classrooms.
