Laura Feuerborn, Professor, Director of School Psychology - September 25, 2021
A valuable resource for anyone in the position to implement SEL in an educational setting. It addresses salient and high-impact topics such as regulation, executive functioning, mindfulness, relationships, and empathy, and it does so in a manner that is concrete, straightforward, easy to digest, and immediately applicable--regardless of setting, grade level, and resources
Dianna Carrizales-Engelmann, Assistant Dean in the College of Education at the University of Oregon - September 14, 2021
Practical and powerful activities like morning greetings and the use of story-time and picture books to think about feelings make this a manageable [resource] for educators at any level...provides guidance for educators to design an academic and behavioral classroom environment that incorporates mindfulness and promotes focus and calm, while reducing stress via functional and organizational approaches.
Kathleen Kryza, International educator, consultant, and author - September 14, 2021
This very readable book concisely offers educators research-based information regarding the essential components of social-emotional learning and interweaves it with practical tips for integrating SEL into daily classroom practice. It’s an essential book for educators who care as much about their students’ emotional wellbeing as their academic learning
