Leading for Change Through Whole-School Social-Emotional Learning

Develop and cultivate a positive school culture! Calling all change agents! If you are hoping to join other schools and districts across the country that are adopting Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) programs and practices to improve student outcomes and teacher capacity, then you’ve found the right book. Let Jennifer Rogers share her specialized experience in developing and implementing behavioral and social-emotional programs and support with you. The practical framework outlined in this book comprises real-world experiences and evidence-based strategies to integrate systemic change toward a positive school culture.

With sustainable practices in mind, this guide features:

  • Thought-provoking worksheets to explore staff understanding of SEL, collect evidence, influence instruction, and more
  • A step-by-step rubric to guide implementation with recommendations
  • Resources to explore at the end of each chapter. Reflection questions to promote deeper thinking

SEL is about both prevention and intervention. For the stakeholders engaged in this work who must think reflectively about schools, this book offers the support, strategies, processes, and tools to teach students these competencies in a comprehensive and sustainable way.
