Here are a number of new resources I’m adding to The Best Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources (some of the links are going to other lists, and I indicate that):
Social-Emotional Learning Review Aims to Help Secondary Schools Select Programs is from Ed Week.
Nonacademic Skills Are Key To Success. But What Should We Call Them? is from NPR.
Viewpoint: How do you instil good character? is from The BBC.
Quiz Yourself: Do You Lead with Emotional Intelligence? is from the Harvard Business Review.
New background questions on social-emotional issues being tested to add context to NAEP results. http://t.co/zFQLM1RDH9

Character Lab has unveiled a free goal-setting program and materials called WHOOP. I think the process they recommend — teachers doing it one-on-one with students for twenty-minutes each — is wildly unrealistic for most teachers, but the downloadable packet is useful and I think could be used class-wide. I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Students Setting Goals.
Talking To Students About Testing is from The Growth Mindset Blog. I’m adding it to The Best Posts On How To Prepare For Standardized Tests (And Why They’re Bad).
