Instructional Strategies
Social and Emotional Learning

The advantages of developing cohesive learning communities in the classroom are numerous. Questions, however, related to how to build a strong, emotionally safe environment conducive to learning and maintain a supportive culture may be unanswered for many.  Social/emotional skills instruction and community-building strategies are central to creating a respectful classroom culture. Three easy-to-use, research-based programs will be discussed. The Talking Together program focuses on teaching important social/emotional skills and concepts that help students feel supported, connected, and engaged in learning. The SCORE Skills for Cooperative Groups is a class wide instructional program designed to teach fundamental skills to facilitate group interaction and enable students to work together pleasantly and productively. The Socially Wise Program provides computer-based instruction in skills that are basic to communication and are typically listed as areas of skill deficits for youth with social-adjustment issues. A brief overview of the research related to the three programs will be discussed.
