The Greater Good Science Center is based at the University of California at Berkeley, and produces some decent resources related to Social Emotional Learning (one of their articles, How to Motivate Kids to Practice Hard Things, made it on The Best Social Emotional Learning Resources Of 2019 – Part One list).
Today, they unveiled a new site specifically for educators.
Here’s what they say about it:
The GGSC Education Team is thrilled to announce the launch of Greater Good in Education, a free new online resource that provides educators, school leaders, school mental health providers, and other education professionals with strategies and practices for the social, emotional, and ethical development of students and the adults who work with them.
- Research-based and informed practices for cultivating positive relationships within schools; supporting the social and emotional needs of students and the adults who work with them; and for integrating SEL, mindfulness, and ethical development within academic content
- Research-based evidence for each practice that explains how a practice works and why it should be used in classrooms and schools
- Personal dashboards for users to save, rate, and comment on practices
- Guidelines for making a practice trauma-informed; for evaluating a practice through a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens; and for adapting a practice for students with special needs
- Monthly School Challenges that provide a collection of practices for addressing a specific dilemma faced by schools, such as student anxiety
