Leading for Change Through Whole-School Social-Emotional Learning
Strategies to Build a Positive School Culture
- Jennifer E. Rogers - Rogers Training Solutions
Develop and cultivate a positive school culture!
Calling all change agents! If you are hoping to join other schools and districts across the country that are adopting Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) programs and practices to improve student outcomes and teacher capacity, then you’ve found the right book.
Let Jennifer Rogers share her specialized experience in developing and implementing behavioral and social-emotional programs and support with you. The practical framework outlined in this book comprises real-world experiences and evidence-based strategies to integrate systemic change toward a positive school culture. With sustainable practices in mind, this guide features
- thought-provoking worksheets to explore staff understanding of SEL, collect evidence, influence instruction, and more
- a step-by-step rubric to guide implementation with recommendations
- resources to explore at the end of each chapter
- reflection questions to promote deeper thinking
SEL is about both prevention and intervention. For the stakeholders engaged in this work who must think reflectively about schools, this book offers the support, strategies, processes, and tools, to teach students these competencies in a comprehensive and sustainable way.
"School leaders are rarely provided with resources and support to implement large scale changes. Leading for Change Through Whole-School Social-Emotional Learning is written in a handbook format and provides educators with implementation strategies and evaluation tools to address school climate."
"Social-emotional learning is the new 'it' topic, yet little is available on how to truly implement it in a practical way. This book is ideal for administrators trying to shift school culture as well as lead teachers."
“As a front-line educator, seriously considering making a personal and professional commitment to serve as a change agent might be a scary proposition. This book serves as an encouraging guide to the brave ones who step up to do what it seems we all, by now, are aware we will eventually need to do.”
“Leading for Change Through Whole-School Social-Emotional Learning provides personally relevant insights for change agents in need of support to transform culture for the whole individual and in turn for the entire school."
