May The Force be with You – What we can learn about Social and Emotional teaching from the US

So I’ve been researching what’s new in Social and Emotional Learning in the US and I’ve been encouraged by everything I’ve read. Evidence coming from the US where SEL has been practiced for over 20 years is definitely showing that it improves academic success and encourages positive behaviour. So if we adopt a more SEL approach in the UK we are more likely to stem the ‘bad behaviour’ which is increasing in schools and prevent mental ill health in young people.

I was so pleased to discover Edutopia which is the Education Foundation set up by George Lucas – Yes George Lucas the creator of Star Wars – May the Force be with you – Please visit
