  4. All Learning is Social and Emotional: Helping Students Develop Essential Skills for the Classroom and Beyond

    While social and emotional learning (SEL) is most familiar as compartmentalised programs separate from academics, the truth is, all learning is social and emotional. What teachers say, the values we express, the materials and activities we choose, and the skills we prioritise all influence how students think, see themselves, and interact with content and with others. If you teach kids rather than standards, and if you want all kids to get what they need to thrive, the authors offer a solution: a comprehensive, five-part model of SEL that's easy to integrate into everyday content instruction, no matter what subject or year level you teach. Use this book's integrated SEL approach to help your students build essential skills that will serve them in the classroom and throughout their lives.
