Image for New Resource on Navigating Social and Emotional Learning

Apr 27, 2017

The Wallace Foundation has released a new report to help schools and out-of-school-time (OST) providers more effectively navigate social and emotional learning.

According to the Wallace Foundation, “This in-depth guide to 25 evidence-based programs—aimed at elementary schools and OST providers—offers information about curricular content and programmatic features that practitioners can use to make informed choices about their SEL programs. The first of its kind, the guide allows practitioners to compare curricula and methods across top SEL programs. It also explains how programs can be adapted from schools to out-of-school-time settings, such as afterschool and summer programs.”

Some key features of the guide include:

  • Background information on SEL and its benefits
  • A summary of the evidence base for each of the 25 programs
  • Recommendations for adapting the programs for OST settings
  • Summary tables that allow consumers to look across the features of the programs and compare them
  • Tools for practitioners, including a Quick Reference Guide and worksheets to help stakeholders make decisions based on the program profiles
