Emotional Literacy: The heart of classroom management is a book for primary school teachers, counsellors and therapists who wish to develop emotional literacy skills in classroom situations. It provides resources for managing the 'feeling' life of children and offers a classroom management model that creates opportunities for healing emotions, rather than emotions being denied, repressed, discounted or excluded from the process. Author Patricia Sherwood provides a framework for understanding the non-verbal languages and skills needed for children to identify the basic human feelings of anger, grief, aloneness, fear, judgement, and the bully and victim behaviours arising from such feelings. Included are group classroom exercises that help to reduce the possibility of major behavioural problems or psychological disturbances and simple self-managed processes that give children basic skills to identify and manage their own emotions.
`As someone with an interest in emotional literacy and in developing emotional literacy work in schools, I found this book an impressive resource. I would recommend it for those interested in this area, those working within schools on emotional literacy, and for school staff interested in developing their schools as emotionally literature organizations' - Debate `This is an authoritative and scholarly book that does not attempt to offer a simple fix-it solution but one that should lead to an informed and workable approach that will address the needs and circumstances of individual schools as such . I would recommend it as an essential read for anyone contemplating the research or promotion of emotional literacy in school' - Special Children `There is much to encourage exploration by schools, educators and managers in an informed way. Helpful appendices list experienced agencies schools may approach in their work on emotional well-being'- Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties `The book provides a useful guide to ways in which school policies for promoting emotional wellbeing can be developed' - Times Educational Supplement, Teacher `This book is written in a refreshingly well-balanced style and it deserves a similarly even-handed review. Katherine Weare never exaggerates a point or pretends to have found the Holy Grail. Instead; each argument is carefully counter pointed by a caveat' - Nurturing Potential `This is a handbook for teachers and LEAs with clearly headed sections, useful tables and list of resources and contacts. There are helpful suggestions for auditing emotional literacy in schools, deciding whether to use off-the-shelf programmes, tailoring programmes to the school's own needs, and working with the wider community' - The Psychology of Education Review 'Visionary and easy to read.

Children learn to identify the basic emotions of childhood: anger, fear, grief and loss, and aloneness in their bodies. They acquire tools to manage these emotions and to transform them into peace, safety, joy and connectedness with simple expressive exercises using sound, colour, movement, gesture, clay, sand and sensing. The exercises are tailored for use with the individual child or for group activities. The model is designed to create an emotionally self-managing classroom in the long term. A place where the children identify their feelings and can move to a corner of the classroom designed specifically for them and where they can work through a particular feeling whether it is anger, grief and loss, fear or aloneness. This book will be of interest to all teachers and parents who feel that they need fresh inspiration when working with the escalating problems of bullying, both from the experience of the child being bullied and the child doing the bullying.
This practical book, aimed at KS2 explores a range of emotions using both original poetry and stimulating artworks to promote discussion. It encourages children to talk about their own feelings and develop their ability to empathise with others.

The social and emotional welfare of students in both K-12 and higher education settings has become increasingly important during the third decade of the 21st century, as students face a variety of social-emotional learning (SEL) challenges related to a multitude of internal and external factors. As concepts around traditional literacy education evolve and become more culturally and linguistically relevant, the connections between SEL and academic literacy opportunities warrant considerable exploration. The Handbook of Research on Supporting Social and Emotional Development Through Literacy Education develops a conceptual framework around pedagogical connections to social and emotional teaching and learning within K-12 literacy practices. This text provides a variety of research and practice protocols supporting student success through the integration of SEL and literacy across grade levels. Covering topics such as culturally relevant literacy, digital literacy, and content-area literacy, this handbook is essential for curriculum directors, education faculty, instructional facilitators, literacy professionals, practicing teachers, pre-service teachers, professional development coordinators, school counselors, teacher preparation programs, academicians, researchers, and students.

Research indicates that approximately one in ten young people experience mental health challenges that are severe enough to impair how they function at school, at home, or in the community. One in every six students experience a clinical mental health disorder during their elementary or secondary school years. Although schools have always had to address mental health issues that affect a student’s learning and achievement, the statistics—and what teachers know from personal experience on the front lines—indicate an urgent need for a stronger and more consistent response to this growing crisis. The manifestations of mental health issues in children and adolescents are often most visible when they are under stress and/or when they are engaged in social situations. That puts teachers in a unique position to observe the warning signs of emotional distress and mental health problems in students. They are often the first to recognize that something might be wrong, and as such are “first responders” in the process of early identification, response, and referral of students experiencing mental health issues. Research shows that early detection and treatment can significantly improve resiliency and the ability to succeed in school and in life. This quick-reference laminated guide will help teachers: Be aware of common mental heath disorders and concerns; Recognize the warning signs that may indicate a potential mental health problem; Understand the issues affecting students’ mental health; Know when and how to refer students to the appropriate mental health staff; Support students in need; Interact with students in crisis; Cultivate a classroom climate conducive to good mental health. It also recommends proactive schoolwide initiatives for creating a learning environment that is emotionally supportive and promotes good mental heath.
Educators worldwide claim that as their pupils learn to control their emotional behaviour their learning improves drastically. Since 2005 the DCSF in the UK has been recommending that all primary schools incorporate emotional intelligence into all lessons. The SEAL approach has also been implemented in secondary schools making emotional literacy a key topic for all teachers. This book tackles the main issues and shows teachers exactly how they can use emotional intelligence to make a real difference to their student's literacy and overall learning abilities.
Increasingly, educators are recognizing that for children to thrive intellectually they need socially and emotionally healthy classrooms. Conveniently, this is exactly what parents have always wanted for their children--classrooms that offer and grow positive relationships and behavior, emotional self-regulation, and a sense of well-being. Using the guiding principles from Peter Johnston's best-selling professional resources, Choice Words and Opening Minds, Peter and six colleagues began a journey to create just such classrooms--environments in which children meaningfully engage with each other through reading, writing, making, and discussing books. In Engaging Literate Minds, you'll discover how these teachers struggled and succeeded in building such classrooms. Inside you'll find the following: Practical ways to develop a caring learning community and children's socio-emotional competence Powerful teaching practices from real classrooms Engaging ways to encourage inquiry and student agency Suggestions on how to use formative assessment in everyday teaching practices Helpful research behind the classroom practices and children's development Ways to help students inspire and support each other Building a just, caring, literate society has never been more important than it is today. By embracing the ideas and teaching strategies in Engaging Literate Minds, you can help children to become socially, emotionally, and intellectually healthy. Not only do these classroom practices develop the skills to achieve district benchmarks and beyond, they help develop children's humanity.

James Park, Director, Antidote "This book will be read by individuals who have an interest in bringing about change in the presentcurriculum. School Science Review This book reveals the huge potential of engaging pupils with their emotions in the classroom, and presents evidence that when pupils work in this way they become more co-operative and help each other to learn. The book explores how schools can move beyond a focus on cognitive attainment through an emphasis on affective engagement, to help pupils develop better relationships of all kinds and prepare them for adulthood in a fast-changing world. For teachers, the book tackles the important questions of: What is emotional literacy and emotional intelligence? How can teachers incorporate pupils' emotional development into their lessons while nourishing and enhancing achievement? How is it possible to have a calm atmosphere in the classroom with pupils enjoying learning together? Engaging Education is the first book to link the issues of emotional literacy, equity and social justice, and the education of the whole child, thus providing the social and political context for emotional literacy. In connecting emotional literacy and equity with the structure of schooling, it establishes that co-educational schools can contribute to enabling boys and girls to relate to and understand each other. Based firmly on research, this innovative book gives teachers invaluable guidelines on what to concentrate on and what to avoid. It is key reading for teachers and trainee teachers as well as policymakers and a

For more than a decade, there has been growing interest and research on the pivotal role of emotions in educational settings. This ground-breaking handbook is the first to highlight this emerging field of research and to describe in detail the ways in which emotions affect learning and instruction in the classroom as well as students’ and teachers’ development and well-being. Informed by research from a number of related fields, the handbook includes four sections. Section I focuses on fundamental principles of emotion, including the interplay among emotion, cognition, and motivation, the regulation of emotion, and emotional intelligence. Section II examines emotions and emotion regulation in classroom settings, addressing specific emotions (enjoyment, interest, curiosity, pride, anxiety, confusion, shame, and boredom) as well as social-emotional learning programs. Section III highlights research on emotions in academic content domains (mathematics, science, and reading/writing), contextual factors (classroom, family, and culture), and teacher emotions. The final section examines the various methodological approaches to studying emotions in educational settings. With work from leading international experts across disciplines, this book synthesizes the latest research on emotions in education.
