Social-emotional learning – Winter 2010 Sample article by Joseph Durlak and Roger Weissberg

This issue focuses on social and emotional learning. Students who can work productively with others, solve interpersonal problems in peaceful ways, and maintain motivation in the face of challenge and disappointment, are likely to be successful in whatever they do and to contribute to society. This issue provides well-founded suggestions for ways teachers and other educators can create classrooms in which pro-social behaviours and emotional regulation are likely to be developed.
