The Importance of Employability Skills
U.S. competitiveness in the global economy depends in part on a workforce that has acquired the “employability skills” required for all jobs.
This EdPrepLab practice brief describes the framework that Trinity University’s Master of Arts in Teaching program uses to integrate social-emotional learning, cultural competences, and equity into teacher preparation.
This two-part study offers information on how preservice and in-service teacher training can support good teaching practices and implement SEL in schools, while providing a picture of what SEL looks like when integrated into the school day.
This report provides a framework for considering how measures of SEL and school climate may be incorporated in a multitiered accountability and continuous improvement system that provides useful information about school status and progress at the state, district, and school levels.
This report synthesizes research on how to support educators in developing the knowledge, skills, and dispositions associated with developing the whole child both in preservice and in-service contexts. It addresses both the “what” of teacher and leader preparation—the content educators need to learn about children and how to support their development and learning—and the “how”—the strategies for educator learning that can produce deep understanding; useful skills; and the capacity to reflect, learn, and continue to improve.
This issue focuses on Fordham Institute’s recently completed study of parent perceptions of social-emotional learning entitled “How to Sell SEL: Parents and the Politics of Social-Emotional Learning.” The study not only focuses on overall parent perceptions, but also explores the differences in those perceptions based on political party affiliation (Republican vs. Democrat).
Brief that describes how schools can ameliorate—rather than exacerbate—racial inequities with research-based practices that advance a restorative approach to schooling and make learning environments more supportive, equitable, and anti-racist.

Report that looks closely at a broad body of neuroscience, science of learning, and child development science to examine how schools can use effective, research-based practices to create settings in which students’ healthy growth and development are central to the design of classrooms and the school as a whole.
