What You Will Learn

Decades of research have confirmed that social emotional competence can be taught and positively impact school cultures. This helpful white paper highlights:

Social and emotional learning (SEL) can be taught, modeled, and practiced and will lead to positive student outcomes.
Teachers also need social emotional learning – the best way to take care of kids is to make sure the people who interact with them most are taking care of themselves.
Social emotional learning helps students develop the self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for growth.
At the school level, successful SEL programs depend on good leadership and staff working well together with shared goals.
Socially and emotionally competent teachers set the tone in their classrooms by developing supportive and encouraging relationships with their students. Many school districts assume that teachers already have these competencies.
The 7 Mindsets SEL program is anchored on a leadership development and coaching process, nurturing the mindsets of both students and educators.

Insights and Lessons — Theory into Practice

Positive outcomes of SEL programs that support educators include reducing stress and job-related anxieties, and depression while increasing teachers’ feelings of job control, warmth and high-quality interactions with students (Greenberg et al., 2016).

Discover how two Texas school districts, Chilton Independent School District (ISD) and New Caney Independent School District (ISD) put theory into practice, implementing 7 Mindsets with a focus on putting teachers first.

``As a leadership team, we try new things to ensure our teachers are okay. In order to address the learning needs of our students, teachers need to be okay,” he said. We knew we would have to hit the ground running and knew once it started, it would be difficult and challenging.”
