An increasing number of districts and schools across the country are exploring social-emotional learning (SEL) strategies as they seek to understand the factors that influence positive student behavior.
The latest example comes from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who recently announced plans to incorporate SEL strategies into every classroom in the city to empower students to expand their growth mindset, self-efficacy, social awareness, and self-management skills.
Last year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction launched a guide for incorporating social-emotional strategies into lesson plans and school culture. At West Allis-West Milwaukee School District (WAWM), we have made efforts over the last few years to strengthen our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports in addition to our Response to Intervention processes by measuring and understanding our students’ SEL.
