Schools to take on ’emotional learning’

The San Diego Tribune – Maureen Magee

“Situated in the heart of City Heights, Cherokee Point implemented social and emotional learning curriculum years ago when it became a “trauma-informed” school. The concept was born out efforts to help students who would show up to class often overcome by the effects of poverty, crime, abuse, language barriers and stress. Now social and emotional learning has emerged as a national movement, driven by attempts to address bullying, improve school climate, help students make connections with adults, and boost academic achievement. The California Department of Education this month appointed a team of educators to develop grade-by-grade social and emotional learning guidelines for schools throughout the state.”(more)
