In this course, students will learn about the theoretical and empirical literature on social and emotional learning (SEL). Students will closely examine the role of schools as contexts for social and emotional development. Throughout the course we will draw on theories from developmental and educational psychology and examine them through an equity lens to better understand the contextual factors that might promote or disrupt the social and emotional development of children and youth. Additionally, because “teacher conditions are student conditions”, we will also learn about teacher social and emotional competence, teacher burnout and resilience.
This course is relevant to teachers across a variety of grade levels and subject-areas, who share an interest in both learning about children and adolescents’ social and emotional development, and in finding ways to promote social and emotional competence, mental health, resiliency, and positive human development.
