A Guide to Incorporating Social-Emotional Learning in the College Classroom
Busting Anxiety, Boosting Ability
The purpose of this manual is to help you begin to think about the ways in which you can incorporate social-emotional learning into your courses. It begins by providing you with relevant background research in social-emotional learning, including a discussion of why you should consider incorporating social-emotional learning practices in the classroom. Specifically, it details the connection between social-emotional learning and important academic outcomes, such as academic buoyancy and anxiety-reduction. It then describes the “Successful in Stats” program, including an appendix that contains the full set of program materials. Next, it discusses the empirical assessment of the efficacy of the program and provides comments from the students who have completed the program. It also provides thoughts about, and suggestions for, the implementation of possible variations of the program. Finally, it provides a list of recommended readings and our contact information.
