A Blog from CASEL and Our Partners in the Field of Social and Emotional Learning
In March 2014 the American Educational Research Journal (AERJ) published results from a large, rigorous, three-year study of the Responsive Classroom approach. Responsive Classroom is one of 23 exemplary evidence-based social and emotional learning programs identified in the 2013 CASEL Guide. The study, funded by the Institute of Education Sciences in the U.S. Department of Education and the National Science Foundation, was conducted by Sara Rimm-Kaufman and colleagues at the University of Virginia Center for the Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL). In addition to being a national leader in the SEL field, in 2007 Rimm-Kaufman was the first scholar to receive CASEL’s Joseph E. Zins Award for Action Research on Social and Emotional Learning. In this blog entry, Rimm-Kaufman describes the origins of the study, its method, and its findings.
