Building Social and Emotional Skills in Elementary Students: The Power of Appreciation | Edutopia

Click the link to the article on Edutopia.  It is an installment in a 9 part series called Project Happiness.  It will help guide your understanding of social and emotional learning in elementary schools.

My favorite quote: “According to Shawn Achor in his book The Happiness Advantage, ‘The brain at positive is 31% more productive is than the brain at negative, neutral or stressed.'”

How true is this?

Happy Reading!
