Carrie Hefner ~ Bonnie Knight ~ Risa Jones ~ Karen McCullough

2 Anticipatory Survey To gauge our students’ present level of emotional intelligence for class, we propose immersing our students in an anticipatory warm-up exercise called, “Text a Keyword.” Students choose from a range of four emotions to share their present feeling via texting to the teacher-coach, their staunch advocate and learning facilitator.

8 Research on Emotional Literacy
“A two-year ( ) University of Wisconsin study by researcher Stephen Elliott of two Springfield, Massachusetts, schools -- one that used a social and emotional learning program called Responsive Classroom and one that did not -- found significant social and academic dividends for students in the Responsive Classroom program.

9 Research on EL cont’d. The program is based on six components:
A morning meeting Classroom organization, rules and logical consequences Guided discovery Academic choice Assessment Reporting ~Emotional-Intelligence Research: Indicators Point to the Importance of SEL, Edutopia

10 Research on EL cont’d. “An evaluation of the three groups of students at age 18, found that those who had participated in the full social development program from grades one through six were involved in fewer violent acts, less likely to use alcohol, drugs, or tobacco, less sexually active, had fewer teen pregnancies, and better behaved in school.

11 Research on EL cont’d. “They had a greater commitment to school and better academic achievement than both the group with no program at all and the group that had participated in the program in the 5th and 6th grades.” ~Emotional-Intelligence Research: Indicators Point to the Importance of SEL, Edutopia

12 YAY! A Group Activity! Prepare to have fun!
Please take a piece of sheet of construction paper and write your name on it with a marker. Ask your neighbor to please pin it on the back of your shirt or blouse.

13 “High Five ~ Group Activity”
Building self-esteem is an easy task when giving and receiving genuine compliments. Use a large sheet of construction paper taped to the back of each student’s top and a marker. Each student moves around the room and writes a positive comment on each other student’s paper, drawing attention to their strengths, gifts, or talents. Then ask each student to read what others have written about them. Open discussion should follow based on the comments shared. Taken from the Emotional Intelligence Activities, p. 15.
