Social-emotional intelligence measures for learning
Michigan State University Extension
Having the ability to communicate needs and/or self-regulate is a building block to learning.
Jem Muldoon's insight:

We are turning the corner. Relieved.

 

"Choosing a school and navigating through all the paperwork is stressful, but watching your child take that “next-step” is the reward. Model for your child the emotional intelligence you want them to emulate. Be aware of your own and your child’s feelings, set goals, be empathetic and balanced as you set forth in your quest to find that school for your son or daughter."

12 Questions To Promote Self-Knowledge In Students | Focusing on Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

"Why should someone learn? While Paulo Freire, John Dewey, and others have provided compelling arguments for what might be the goal of education, learning and education are not one and the same. One simple overarching goal of learning, as opposed to education. might be for each learner to understand 'how to work well in one’s place,' wherever that place may be."

Hopeful:

"The methods now have names such as PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support), Safe & Civil Schools, CBITS (Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools), restorative justice, trauma-sensitive schools, and HEARTS (Healthy Environments and Response to Trauma in Schools). They all focus first on changing what teachers and administrators do. Once that’s done, most children’s behavior begins to fall into place."
