A fair amount of research has been coming out highlighting the importance of students feeling a sense of “belonging” at school, and I’ve previously shared quite a bit of it.
Today, Ed Week wrote about yet another piece of research (see Students Who Feel They Belong Are Less Likely to Bully, Study Finds) and I decided it was finally time to create a related “Best” list.
I’m adding this post to my collection of SEL-related lists, as well as adding it specifically to A Very, Very Beginning List Of The Best Resources On Bullying — Please Suggest More.

How Being Part of a ‘House’ Within a School Helps Students Gain A Sense of Belonging is from MindShift (that’s in The Best Resources For Learning About Small Learning Communities list).
