Promoting social and emotional learning : guidelines for educators by Maurice J Elias( )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and Japanese and held by 2,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fostering knowledgeable, responsible, and caring students is one of the most urgent challenges facing schools, families, and communities as we enter the 21st century. Promoting Social and Emotional Learning provides sound principles for meeting this challenge. This timely book addresses a crucial need among educators for a straightforward, practical guide to establishing high-quality social and emotional education programs. True academic success and lasting social effectiveness, the authors believe, require strong social and emotional skills. Students today face unparalleled demands. In addition to achieving academically, they must learn to work cooperatively, make responsible decisions about social and health practices, resist negative peer and media influences, contribute constructively to their family and community, function in an increasingly diverse society, and acquire the skills, attitudes, and values necessary to become productive workers and citizens. A comprehensive, integrated program of social and emotional education can help students meet these many demands. The authors draw upon the most recent scientific studies, the best theories, site visits carried out around the country, and their own extensive experiences to describe approaches to social and emotional learning for all levels. Framing the discussion are 39 concise guidelines, as well as many field inspired examples for classrooms, schools, and districts. Chapters address how to develop, implement, and evaluate effective strategies. Educators who have programs in place will find ways to strengthen them. Those seeking greater direction will find an abundance of approaches and ideas. Appendixes include a curriculum scope for preschool through grade 12 and an extensive list of contacts that readers may follow up for firsthand knowledge about effective social and emotional learning programs. The authors of Promoting Social and Emotional Learning: Guidelines for Educators are members of the Work Group of the Collaborative for the Advancement of Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL)

Educating people to be emotionally intelligent( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Parents and educators need to perform their caregiving roles and teach with emotional intelligence if children are to develop the skills and discernment needed to cope with the complexities of an increasingly globalized world. Workplaces that apply emotional intelligence are more pleasant places in which to work, provide a more fulfilling experience for employees and are, in the end, more productive organizations. Emotional intelligence can be developed by most individuals to increase performance in many areas of life. And a growing body of evidence indicates EI skills may improve physical health, as well as mental health. Daniel Goleman, the literary catalyst for worldwide interest in emotional intelligence, sets the stage for this groundbreaking book in his foreword explaining its landmark importance. People can be educated to be more emotionally intelligent, and this particular type of education takes place through a specific type of parenting at home, formal education at school, and training and coaching at work."--Jacket

Problem solving/decision making for social and academic success by Maurice J Elias( Book )

3 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the premise that systematic instruction in social decision-making and problem-solving skills is a developmental right of all children, this book provides an in-service training program for teaching a set of social decision-making and problem-solving steps that are essential for success in school, in the family, with friends, in the world of work, and in the exercise of the privileges and obligations of citizenship in a democracy. The central concept of the program is "fig tespn" (an acronym for a sequential set of problem-solving skills: Feelings; Identification of the issue; Guiding oneself to a goal; Thinking of possibilities; Envisioning end results for each option; Selecting the best solution; Planning the procedure; and Noticing what happened). Accordingly, Chapter 1 addresses the central role of social decision-making and problem-solving in education. Chapter 2 discusses the methods of social decision-making instruction, including assessment of skills and instructional procedures. Chapter 3 describes activities to promote self-control, social awareness, . And group participation. Chapter 4 presents details of the "fig tespn" model as an instructional unit for teaching social decision-making and problem-solving. Chapter 5 provides a variety of strategies for incorporating social decision-making activities into the classroom. Chapter 6 discusses ways to adapt social decision-making to different school populations, including learning disabled, gifted and talented, students with attention deficits, emotionally disturbed students, and culturally different populations. The conclusion reiterates the basic principles of the "fig tespn" model. Appended are sample stories for students, resources for teachers, a glossary of acronyms, and a bibliography. (Te)
