Research-based Resources on Parenting, Social and Emotional Learning and School-Family Partnerships
From the web site: "The mission of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and the Social and Emotional Learning Research Group is to help make evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) an integral part of education from preschool through high school. Because parents are critical partners in achieving that mission, we are providing resources to help them learn more. We have partnered with parenting and SEL expert Jennifer Miller to develop a thoughtfully curated list of resources that might assist parents in learning more about social and emotional learning in schools or in their own parenting practices with their children. There is also a section specific to supporting school-family partnerships with resources to help parents engage in their children’s school. These particular sites were chosen because they regularly utilize the research literature to ensure that their work is well-informed by science."
