Professional Development: Emotional Intelligence
As teachers, we want to prepare our students for future success. But is strong knowledge of academic content enough alone? In our 21st century classrooms, why is it also critical that our P-12 students recognize, understand, and manage their emotions? How can we foster the growth of our students' emotional intelligence in developmentally appropriate ways? How can this growth impact their attitudes, behaviors, and achievement? Research-based answers to these questions will be the topic of our next ASCD student chapter meeting.
