Description

Social-Emotional Learning: Why it’s Important and the Impact of Teachers and Schools

There is a growing consensus in education that schools can and should attend to students’ social-emotional development. As a result, in California, policymakers and practitioners alike have become interested in measuring students's social-emotional learning (SEL), both to understand individual students' needs and to evaluate schools' efforts to support them. In this seminar, researchers will review a wide portfolio of research using data from the CORE districts, which serve nearly one million students and have been administering an SEL survey to all students in grades 4-12 since 2014. Researchers will review the evidence of validity of CORE's survey, describe the relationship between SEL and other outcomes, and discuss the impact of classrooms and schools in social-emotional development.

Speakers:

  • Heather Hough - Policy Analysis for California Education
  • Klint Kanopka - Stanford University
  • Mai Xi Lee - Sacramento City Unified
  • Jennifer Peck - Partnership for Children and Youth
  • Libby Pier - Education Analytics

Please note this event starts at 12:00pm with lunch served starting at 11:30am.
