Seattle, WA - Committee for Children (CFC), the nation’s leading non-profit provider of social-emotional curricula, has teamed up with Atlanta-based Points of Light to find and support innovative ventures in social-emotional learning during the fall 2014 Civic Accelerator.
Washington, D.C. – In a complex and increasingly challenging world, children need every competitive advantage they can get. In addition to academic skills such as reading and math, students must also develop social and emotional competencies like self-control, problem-solving, and the ability to work cooperatively with others. According to educators and researchers who presented evidence to support these findings in a congressional briefing today, these skills will help students succeed not only in school but in future roles as citizens, employees, managers, parents, volunteers, and entrepreneurs.
Seattle nonprofit teams up with two assessment publishers to evaluate social-emotional learning. Research is showing more and more positive effects of social-emotional learning (SEL), making it an imperative part of school curriculum. But just like math and reading programs, it’s important to assess whether students are truly learning what they’re being taught.
