So much has been written about Social Emotional Learning – see The Best Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources.
But, really, who has time to read all of it? What’s a one-stop shop where you can get a pretty good overview of what it is, why it’s important, and how it might work in the classroom?
Here are a handful of recent reviews/studies that I think are pretty good. Let me ones you think should be added to the list:
The Need to Address Noncognitive Skills in the Education Policy Agenda is from The Economic Policy Institute.
Teaching Adolescents To Become Learners: The Role of Noncognitive Factors in Shaping School Performance: A Critical Literature Review is from The University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research. Here’s an accompanying video:
The impact of non-cognitive skills on outcomes for young people is from The Education Endowment Foundation in the UK.
Everyone Starts With An A is from RSA.
Psychology of Learning is from The Education Writers Association.
Knowledge, Skills, and Dispositions:The Innovation Lab Network State Framework for College, Career, and Citizenship Readiness,and Implications for State Policy is from CCSSO. It doesn’t give an extensive review of SEL, but makes excellent connections between SEL and the Common Core.
Encouraging Social and Emotional Learning In the Context of New Accountability is a new report from The Learning Policy Institute.
Educating the Whole Child: Improving School Climate to Support Student Success is from The Learning Policy Institute.
