Social-Emotional Learning Forum

Nashville. Chicago.

Truly effective schools not only help students pass their academic exams and state-mandated tests, but also prepare those students to pass the tests of life. Research shows that helping young people manage their emotions and build positive relationships not only prepares them for “real life,” it also helps them succeed academically. The Social-Emotional Learning Forum focuses on research-based and classroom-originated interventions, lessons and curriculums that help students manage their emotions, achieve goals, express heart-felt empathy for others, maintain positive relationships and make successful personal decisions.
