Educating minds and hearts

In this book, leading experts in Social Emotional Learning (SEL) discuss the programs that teachers, counselors, and administrators can use to foster SEL in middle schools. A variety of SEL-related topics are covered, including conflict resolution, self-esteem, and appropriate classroom behaviour. Each chapter of this book provides concrete strategies, perspectives, and tools that can help students in the classroom or at school more generally – and also makes recommendations for how teachers can develop their own SEL competencies.

Dr. Jonathan Cohen, author and editor of “Educating Minds and Hearts”, is the president and co-founder of the National School Climate Center in New York, where he works with schools, districts, and state departments of education to assess and improve schools.
