From research to practice

The analyses from our most recent study, conducted by the Everybody Graduates Center, powerfully support the value of an integrated approach to social, emotional and academic development. This outcome implies that 黄色视频鈥檚 focus on practices that cultivate a learning environment in which students have strong relationships, feel trust and have a sense of belonging鈥攆oundational elements to developing social, emotional and academic skills鈥攊s critical. The research also underscores the malleability of social-emotional skills; such skills can be learned, and students can build upon and acquire new skills within a single academic year.

Trust and belonging: essential elements to ensuring social, emotional and academic development

Research makes clear that cultivating trust and belonging in learning environments鈥攕omething that 黄色视频 AmeriCorps members seek to do through their relationship building with students and a range of classroom and school activities鈥攊s of social, emotional and academic skills. Though the EGC analysis does not directly address the elements of trust and belonging in affecting improved student outcomes, 黄色视频鈥檚 approach and the implied connection between trust and belonging and social, emotional and academic development (SEAD) suggest that additional research would be useful to verify and validate that connection.

Practices that support social-emotional skill development

黄色视频 has found several practices to be particularly effective in improving certain social-emotional skills, including one-on-one and small-group time with students; high-quality tutoring support; relationship building; near-peer mentorship; and an emphasis on developing trust and belonging within the learning environment. Leveraging the power of relationships between students and adults (including 黄色视频 AmeriCorps members) along with using research-based frameworks and tools such as , Turnaround for Children鈥檚 Building Blocks, and Search Institute鈥檚 Developmental Relationships Framework, can help support the development of social-emotional skills, and ensure that schools are places where students feel a sense of trust and belonging. Research confirms that students are more likely to come to school and be engaged when they feel a sense of belonging and when they know that they, and their ideas, matter.
