New Social-Emotional Learning Guide

New Social-Emotional Learning Guide

November 9, 2018

Education Dive’s Lucy Hood reports on the importance of social-emotional learning (SEL) and highlights a new guide from the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL). The guide, “provides educators with assessment tools for gauging social emotional learning (SEL) as well as guidelines for collecting data on student progress and using that data to inform instruction, practice and policy implementation.” SEL has garnered “more attention since 2015 when the Every Student Succeeds Act added a provision that allows schools and state education agencies to expand the definition of student success beyond academics.”
