Social awareness is the ability to take the perspective of and empathize with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to understand social and ethical norms for behaviour, and to recognize family, school, and community resources and supports. Research suggests that learners with strong social awareness adapt more easily to their environment, empathize with the perspectives of others, and engage in fewer disruptive classroom behaviors.
This, in turn, creates a setting where learners can focus on learning. Findings also suggest that learners who demonstrate strong social awareness are able to engage in constructive communication with their peers and resolve conflicts when they arise. These learners benefit from peer learning and know how to take advantage of social supports.
