Social Emotional Learning is popular! But why do school reformers discuss SEL like it has been hiding under a rock someone just kicked over? Haven’t preschool teachers always worked with children on how to get along? While reading and thinking about preschool, I thought it would be interesting to explore SEL as it relates to this age group. I’ve written about SEL before. Here. Is it preschool discipline in disguise?
For example, a recent report by Penn State and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Promoting Social Emotional Learning in Preschool: Programs and Practices that Work, says SEL in preschool means children should be able to get along and cooperate with others, manage strong feelings, focus attention, and persist at challenging tasks.
