From No Child to Whole Child: SEL in the Classroom

Though not currently assessed by standardized tests, a growing body of research indicates social-emotional or “non-cognitive” skills significantly impact students’ academic performance, persistence, and their broader life outcomes. Social-emotional learning (SEL) helps foster characteristics like grit, growth mindset and self-regulation that impact students’ schoolwork and interpersonal relationships. This panel will highlight leading practices, research and policies that support SEL in schools.
