Teaching students social and emotional skills in school through a comprehensive, integrated program of social and emotional learning (SEL) not only results in improved school climate and better inter- and intra-personal skills, but also decreases behavior problems and increases academic achievement. Promoting Social and Emotional Learning is a comprehensive resource that provides educators with straightforward, practical guidance for establishing high-quality social and emotional education programs that equip students with the emotional skills they need for success in the classroom and throughout their lives. 

The authors draw upon the most recent scientific studies, the best theories, site visits carried out around the country, and their own extensive experiences to describe approaches to social and emotional learning for all levels. Framing the discussion are 39 concise guidelines, as well as many field-inspired examples for classrooms, schools, and districts. Chapters address how to develop, implement, and evaluate effective strategies. Educators who have programs in place will find ways to strengthen them. Those seeking greater direction will find an abundance of approaches and ideas. Appendixes include a curriculum scope for preschool through grade 12 and an extensive list of contacts that readers may follow up for firsthand knowledge about effective social and emotional learning programs.

Readers will come away with a better understanding the relationship of academic achievement, social-emotion competencies, and the development of character and a core set of life principles, and with the knowledge and tools they need to develop and implement school-based interventions to strengthen social-emotion skills, character, and prevent bullying, violence and victimization, substance abuse, and related problem behaviors.
