A Summary of Initial Efforts in Developing Competency-Based Teacher Training for Social-Emotional Growth.
Henderson, Judith E.
This five-part document, based on the position that schools should teach social-emotional development, presents a rationale concerning human needs for healthy social-emotional development, presents a rationale for teaching it, and outlines exploratory and respectful behaviors. Part 1 defines the position which stresses the need to increase awareness and respect of difference and willingness to assume responsibility for the constructive behavior of self and others. Part 2 discusses human needs for healthy social-emotional development, which include self/other exploration, self/other respect, and self/other responsibility. Part 3 discusses ways to teach social-emotional development by learning to (a) assess constructive/destructive social-emotional behavior, (b) set goals for increasing constructive social-emotional behavior, (c) plan and implement strategies for encouraging constructive social-emotional behavior, and (d) evaluate the results of instruction directed toward increasing constructive social-emotional behavior. Behavioral indicators are given for determining high and low exploratory behavior and high and low respectful behavior. (PD)
