Pandemic-induced trauma, stress leading to 'uptick' in SEL need
from Education DIVE
While districts brace for a loss of academic learning and wider equity gaps in the fall, the global pandemic is emerging as an opportunity to build social-emotional skills. "We're seeing a significant uptick in interest in social-emotional learning from districts," Melissa Schlinger, vice president of practice and programs at the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning, said. She noted isolation and rapid changes are highlighting the importance of emotional management, relationship and problem-solving skills that can help students cope.
