SEL Teacher Practices

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is a teaching framework through which students gain critical life skills such as responsible decision-making, self-awareness, management of emotions, and empathy. The NoVo Foundation — in partnership with Education First and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors — is supporting school districts and teachers with grants and great information resources (where I come in) devoted to showcasing SEL best practices.

  • Working with development partner Erin Kodama, we created a rich interactive experience that both “makes the case” for SEL as well as providing a library resources developed by teacher awardees. View the site.

  • At the conclusion of the SEL award school year, teachers were asked to provide narrative and photos showcasing the highlights and challenges of implementing SEL in their schools and classrooms — which we then turned into a 110-page hardbound book.
