The Benefits of The EQ Educator
A growing body of research demonstrates that an evidence-based approach to
Teachers who include SEL in their classrooms report a more effective learning environment, better problem-solving skills, and stronger interpersonal connections – and they end up having more time to pursue all their instructional goals.
While most teachers see the value in teaching their students to effectively understand and manage emotions, few teachers have experienced this kind of learning themselves. As a result, even very experienced teachers have a limited number of strategies and techniques to systematically teach social and emotional skills.
An effective SEL program includes:
- A developmental, research-based methodology for teaching the skills
- Processes for integrating SEL skills and concepts into the classroom
- Methods for making the SEL vocabulary and skills part of the school culture
- School climate that supports students, faculty, and parents
- Leadership team committed to a sustainable approach to school-wide SEL
- Assessments to deepen awareness, guide instruction and provide accountability for SEL interventions
