Check out a school system that’s implemented social and emotional learning to great effect at the early childhood level: Racine (Wisconsin) Unified School District. Educators, parents, and a student share their experiences.
** Here’s how Racine’s work connects to Wisconsin’s Social and Emotional Learning Competencies:
To keep kids healthy, safe, supported and encouraged in school, Racine is helping young children learn skills to develop and maintain friendships (Social Competence #15, Self-Concept #8), resolve conflicts (Social Competence #19), problem solve (Social Competence #20), stay safe and be kind (Social Competence #18 and #22), as well as how to manage emotions (Emotional Development #3) and how to recognize their feelings and those of others (Emotional Development #1 and #2).
