Schools, Families, and Social and Emotional Learning: Ideas and Tools for Working with Parents and Families
Fredericks, Linda; Weissberg, Roger; Resnik, Hank; Patrikakou, Eva; O'Brien, Mary Utne
Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (NJ1)
Parents and schools working together to build students' social, emotional, and academic skills can accomplish far more than either group working alone. Both schools and parents can contribute in unique ways to make the partnership fruitful. Handouts included with this packet offer small things that all parents can consider doing. When done on a regular basis with children, these actions can make a significant difference in children's well-being and social and emotional learning (SEL). Handouts include: "10 Things You Can Do at Home," "10 Things You Can Do with Your School," "Tips for Parents," and "'Books for Parents." Parents' views on SEL programs being used at their children's schools based on a series of interviews with parents, and suggested resources are also included.
