Unit 3: Evaluating the Social Emotional Model
Let’s take a deeper look at the learning model: How could it be used in the classroom? What sort of thoughts, concepts, and ideas can be brought up? How do I make sure that my students are getting the best possible Social Emotional Learning experience? As an educator, what do I have to do in the classroom? What should my students be doing during a Social Emotional activity? Dive right into the ocean of knowledge that waits for you in this unit!
- You can assess the importance of Social Emotional Intelligence in the classroom.

Lesson 1: Developing Social Emotional Intelligence
Part of implementing Social Emotional learning in the classroom requires being able to understand emotions. Teachers need to be able to respond to students' physical, verbal, and emotional reactions appropriately. This requires a certain level of intelligence, and that does not mean "book" smarts or "street" smarts... this requires "people" smarts.
As we discussed in our first unit, Intelligence is defined as the ability to acquire knowledge and skills. Throughout life, it is important that we consistently attend to developing both our knowledge and our skills. Furthermore, Social Emotional Intelligence is the ability to recognize interactions and feelings in other people and in diverse situations. Whether it be in the classroom or in society, it is important to be able to recognize emotions, and respond to them accordingly.
The Harvard Business Review recognizes the idea that Social Emotional Intelligence is necessary in the workforce. A college professor and writer for the Review illustrates this point with the questions: "For example, if you’ve been told you need to keep your temper under control, show more empathy for others, or be a better listener, what are the odds you can really do it? How do you know if your efforts will pay off, and which interventions will be most effective?" The article discusses five key points of Emotional Intelligence, or as referred to in the article as a high emotional quotient (EQ), which range from looking at the concept from a cognitive-behavioral perspective or progress-feedback perspective.
Above all, Social Emotional Intelligence can be illustrated through this wonderful TED video.
