A review of the literature on social and emotional learning for students ages 3–8: Characteristics of effective social and emotional learning programs.

A review of the literature on social and emotional learning for students ages 3–8: Characteristics of effective social and emotional learning programs

Responding to a need expressed by the Early Childhood Education Research Alliance, the research team conducted a systematic review and synthesis of recent research reviews and meta-analyses on the topic of SEL. The review identified effective SEL programs, strategies, and implementation practices. These effective components include aspects of program design, teacher training and technical assistance, and integration of SEL with existing structures. The review also described state and district policies that support SEL, such as engaging stakeholders, assessing resources and needs, adopting evidence-based SEL programs, integrating SEL into teacher and administrator evaluation systems, and developing comprehensive, freestanding SEL learning standards.

During our time writing on MindShift we’ve been lucky enough to meet, talk with and see inside the classrooms of amazing teachers all around the country and world.

We are inspired by the creativity and dedication of the teachers we meet. Most are constantly thinking about how to improve outcomes for their students and are putting in long, grueling hours to meet the expectations of state and federal regulators, while trying to satisfy their own professional integrity. So, we’re very excited to announce that MindShift is launching a podcast dedicated to showcasing the stories teachers share with their friends, families and loved ones. These are the stories they find themselves telling over and over again, the ones that have made a mark on them as people. Some are funny, others poignant, but all are told in the teacher’s voice, with their energy and thoughtfulness, something that’s often missing from the education conversation.
