Principals’ Perspectives on How Social and Emotional Learning Can Prepare Children and Transform Schools

Ready to Lead: A 2019 Update of Principals’ Perspectives on How Social and Emotional Learning Can Prepare Children and Transform Schools shares principal views on integrating social and emotional learning (SEL) in schools. Following up on a 2017 report, this new study finds that principals stand ready to bring systemic, schoolwide SEL to their schools, but they need greater support from state and district leaders to ensure every student has access to a high-quality education. The report was produced by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL).

Teens Want Schools That Nurture Their Social and Emotional Development

Today’s youth face numerous challenges, but many are also passionate about their communities and their futures, and have a unique perspective on the role of education in their day-to-day lives. This article from ASCD Express discusses findings from a CASEL report on youth perspectives about high school and social and emotional learning (SEL). The study found that students believe that there are benefits to attending a high school that promotes SEL, but felt that there were also ways that high schools could improve their current SEL offerings.

Service Learning Strengthens Social and Emotional Learning

Service learning can strengthen social and emotional learning (SEL) skills among students. That is the primary finding shared in “Longitudinal Change in Adolescents’ Prosocial Behavior Toward Strangers, Friends, and Family,” a recent article in the Journal of Research on Adolescence. The type of service learning activity matters, however. Service learning activities that align with educational activities have more meaning for students. Similarly, working with individuals who are less fortunate helps students develop empathy and self-esteem. A summary of the study and findings can be found on the Education Dive website.

Learning to Self Manage

A new research story from the Harvard Graduate School of Education examines students' abilities to exercise self-control. The story cites studies that found that voluntary agreements to restrictions or penalties are not enough to help students improve behaviors, even when students are motivated to change. The story suggests that educators work with students to co-create environments where students can engage in positive behavior and also give students a sense of agency in selecting strategies that can help them improve behavior.
