This much-needed volume presents current thinking about effective social and emotional education with young children. Leading national experts describe the range of programs and perspectives that elementary teachers and school specialists can use to promote social-emotional learning. They provide concrete strategies and curricular-based programs that educators can rapidly implement or integrate into school life—in and outside the classroom. This completely practical guide emphasizes techniques, strategies, and curricular approaches that will help teachers learn what to do and how to do it. It is a natural choice for staff development workshops.
