All Learning Is Social and Emotional, Helping Students Develop Essential Skills for the Classroom and Beyond

What exactly is social and emotional learning?

How can teachers integrate social and emotional learning into classrooms to support students? Our authors believe that classroom learning always includes cognitive, social and emotional aspects. Does focusing on SEL take away from academics? Do SEL programs teach values and if so, is that a job for teachers or parents? This book, written by Nancy Frey, Douglas Fisher and Dominique Smith, provides K-12 educators with a toolbox of strategies that will help transform students into empowered, all- purpose problem solvers.

Graduate Credits/Clock Hours: 3 Quarter Graduate Credits offered through Seattle Pacific University or 30 Clock Hours offered.

WA State OSPI clock hours offered through approved provider ESD 112

State of Nevada Department of Education Approved Provider

Texas Education Agency Approved CPE provider.
