I’m hopelessly behind on important resources to share, particularly ones related to Social Emotional Learning. Thanks to Karen HuxtableJester and to Vipula Sharma for some of the links. I’ll be adding this post to The Best Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources:
The Educator and the Growth Mindset is from Jackie Gerstein and Metacognition Curriculum is an older post from Frank Noschese.
Test Your Mindset is an online interactive from Carol Dweck that I think would be useful to offer to students.
Helping Students Reach Their Full Potential with the Growth Mindset is by Dan Winkler and provides a pretty good, and short, definition of a growth mindset.
I’m adding all the previously-mentioned links to The Best Resources On Helping Our Students Develop A “Growth Mindset.”
Teaching Teenagers to Develop Their Emotional Intelligence is from, of all places, The Harvard Business Review. Though I’m a bit skeptical of making these kinds of connections, here was a particularly interesting sentence (and link) from the article:
a cost-benefit analysis released last month concluded that for every dollar schools spend on SEL, there is an average of $11 worth of benefits to society, including costs associated with healthcare and educational attainment.
Here’s an Ed Week article on that particular study.
How to Be Emotionally Intelligent is from The New York Times.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control:
Duckworth quoting Walter Mischel "The most important scientific discovery about self-control is that it can be taught" #aps15nyc

High Schools That Walk the Social-Emotional Walk (and Don’t Just Talk the Talk) is from Ed Week.
