The Best Social Emotional Learning Resources Of 2018 – So Far

| 0 comments

 

I publish a regular series called SEL Weekly Update, and I thought it would useful to readers and to me to review them and highlight the ones I think are the best of the year.

You might also be interested in “Best” Lists Of The Week: Social Emotional Learning Resources.

I’ll be adding this list to All 2018 Mid-Year “Best” Lists – In One Place!

You might also be interested in A Collection Of My Best Resources On Student Motivation and My Best Posts On New Research Studies In 2018 – So Far.

And, then, of course, there’s last year’s list: The Best Social Emotional Learning Resources Of 2017

Here are my choices:

I’ve been long-concerned about The manipulation of Social Emotional Learning and what can often be its lack of connection to racial equity issues. The Aspen Institute just published a report raising those issues very eloquently: Pursuing Social and Emotional Development Through a Racial Equity Lens: A Call to Action. I have questioned the value of some of the reports Aspen has put out about SEL, but I think this one should be studied by every school that thinks they are emphasizing SEL at their site. I’m adding this info to The Best Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources.

Alabama proves that if schools don’t intervene, racist youth grow up to be racist adults is by Andre Perry. Here’s how he ends it:

The framing of the achievement gap ignores critical competencies that every student must demonstrate, and it also doesn’t reward those who have exhibited proficiency. This is where SEL advocates must show how schools can evaluate cross-cultural awareness and gender sensitivity. At the state, district and school level, we need curricula and programs that hold students to a high standard of appropriate social behavior — something that holds them accountable before they make it so close to Capitol Hill.
