Case Study Description
A new case study from the Aspen Institute National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development explores how schools and school districts across the country are integrating social, emotional and academic development (SEAD) into their K-12 classroom curricula. From the “growth mindset” math program in the San Francisco Unified School District to a D.C. school embedding collaboration, critical feedback, and leadership skills in its lessons across subject areas, the case study highlights promising strategies for leveraging the curriculum to simultaneously build students’ social, emotional, and academic skills.
The report is the first in a series that will examine challenges, opportunities, and key lessons for re-envisioning what success looks like in our schools. The series serves to help drive a greater conversation about how students learn and how to bring the best ideas and practices to all schools and students.
