SEL and the Comer Process – Fay Brown, Christine Emmons and James Comer explain how six key areas, including social and emotional development, are vital to academic success and healthy development
A CENTRAL THESIS of the School Development Program (SDP), or Comer Process, is that children and adolescents grow and develop along six critical pathways: physical, cognitive, social, language, ethical, and psychological; and that because development and academic learning are inextricably linked, improved learning follows improved development.
|What we know|
|● Social and emotional development is inextricably interconnected to development along other critical pathways.
● Through planned mediated activities such as morning meetings, pupils’ problem solving skills, their learning and their development can be greatly enhanced.
● In schools where a developmental understanding permeates the culture, there is a greater likelihood for pupil success.
