Lon Woodbury's insight:

Part of what this seems to be saying is that the mind is closely connected to emotions, and real learning will only take place (or not) as colored by emotions. -Lon

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 6, 2015 6:09 AM

Should schools "teach kids about emotions and conflict negotiation in the same way they teach math and reading?" There are many who say yes to this question, and this piece from  NPR provides a look at why it should be considered.

There is a program called Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) that helps students recognize and express their emotions. Twiggy the Turtle is a key character, and with Twiggy students learn skills to use, skills that help them with social-emotional learning.

The program has been around since 1980. In 1991 Kenneth Dodge, a psychologist at Duke University, began a long-term study to see how programs that helped teach about social-emotional learning actually worked. His work was recently published in the American Journal of Psychiatry and the data shows they are successful.

The joy of finding great resources on PBS is that you can choose to read the text or to listen to the program. To learn more about this work click through to the post.
