Overview: Social-emotional skills are an important component of school readiness and healthy child development. Being able to get along and cooperate with others, manage strong feelings, focus attention, and persist at challenging tasks are critical for long-term school and life success. This webinar will provide an overview of effective preschool social-emotional learning (SEL) programs and practices that have emerged in high-quality, rigorous research studies. Five key features that boost program impact will be identified, including: 1) a focus on improving classroom management and the quality of teacher-student interactions, 2) intentional efforts to build child skills, 3) the use of professional development to promote high-fidelity implementation, 4) the inclusion of parents, and 5) integration with academic enrichment programs.
- Reflect on the definition and description of the social-emotional skills that support school success
- Consider the research base on promoting social-emotional learning in preschool settings
- Identify and discuss the key features of effective preschool social-emotional learning programs
