Using Social and Emotional Learning to Foster Academic Achievement in Secondary Mathematics
Jones, Jennifer L.; Jones, Karrie A.; Vermette, Paul J.
American Secondary Education, v37 n3 p4-9 Sum 2009
Teaching social-emotional skills to secondary students has been linked to higher student achievement, more positive student motivation and more socially acceptable classroom behaviors (Elias & Arnold, 2006; Weissburg et al., 2003; Kress et al., 2004). Much of the current literature on social-emotional learning (SEL) focuses on research. This piece provides educators with a plan for teaching key social and emotional skills in secondary mathematics classrooms using three key "entry points": (1) the redefining of "lesson planning," (2) the establishment of an SEL-conducive climate, and (3) the inclusion of student refection and self-assessment.
