Common Core Raises Profile Of Social And Emotional Learning

EdSource Today (5/16, Adams) profiles Michelle Flores, a third-grade teacher at Aspire Capitol Heights Academy in Sacramento, California, who "incorporates social and emotional instruction, including the idea that making a mistake is not cause for embarrassment, into academics at the charter school using an approach called Responsive Classroom." The piece notes that some California educators pondering implementation of the Common Core Standards "say that explicit instruction in social and emotional competence – teaching students how to regulate their emotions, problem-solve, and disagree respectfully, among other abilities – should be a key part of the equation."
