This primer sets out to define and promote Social and Emotional Development (SED) teaching practices. SED connects the overlapping terms that educators, developmental psychologists, neuroscientists, and economists use to describe complex learning skills.

The authors argue that SED can promote deeper learning in pupils and suggest that educators need to make the most of this connection, and approach SED as a core part of teaching rather than an add-on. They provide a summary of different research that demonstrates the positive impact of SED in teaching.

Their goal is to help school leaders understand the mutual relationship between social and emotional development and academic attainment. They also claim effective SED instruction can improve pupils’ outcomes on college- (university) and career-ready standards. 

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
