Academic & Social Goals
"When planning lessons, we craft two types of goals — academic and social. Having dual goals ensures that both of the things we value — how students are working together and what they are learning — are given equal attention during our teaching." ~ Peter Brunn, The Lesson Planning Handbook: Essential Strategies That Inspire Student Thinking & Learning (p. 49)
The Illinois State Board of Education partners with Illinois Classrooms in Action to provide a wide variety of resources, including social emotional learning competencies organized by grade band.
Sponsored by Classrooms in Action, this resource provides ideas for integrating technology into lessons and units to support social-emotional skills of students in the classroom.
