Translating the science of reading into actionable classroom instruction to achieve real equity in our classrooms
Social-Emotional Learning: Empowering Teachers to Support Students Featuring Trisha DiFazio and Allison Roeser, authors of Social Emotional Learning Starts With Us
Is social-emotional learning (SEL)—like the techniques Ted Lasso uses to inspire his soccer players—a passing fad or a crucial component of any learning environment? In episode four of the All for Literacy podcast, educational consultants Trisha DiFazio and Allison Roeser discuss the staying power of SEL and its long-term effects on the success and well-being of students and educators.
Sometimes educators get nervous that [SEL] is something that they need to carve out time for or it's something they have to lop on top of what they're already doing. And, in reality, SEL can be woven into the instruction into the classroom culture and happen in a moment."
