Adopt Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) programs and aim to teach resilience.
Test scores throughout the nation have measurably increased by systematically teaching emotional intelligence, self-control mechanisms, focus techniques, and coping skills. These traits also have been proven to improve collaboration between students and higher rates of long-term information retention.
Emotional intelligence learning addresses the topics of emotional awareness, self-control, social interaction, decision making and the value of empathy, to name a few. Mental education and training provide techniques coupled with a system for achieving academic performance.
