The Curriculum Corner: Social Emotional Learning

Click here to read an excellent article from Edutopia on the importance of social emotional learning for our students. Like much of what we do, this is a multifaceted topic, and Roger Weissberg does a nice job of breaking down the various components of social emotional learning, stressing the role of all stakeholders in this process. Feel free to share some strategies you utilize to develop student awareness of the "5 key skills" in your classroom via email, social media or in the footer of the Buzz...and click on the video below to learn more!
