Social Emotional Learning and the Common Core State Standards

A few posts back, I shared resources (here and here) about promoting an environment of compassion in the classroom. On this day of candied hearts and (realized or unrequited) love, Dr. Vicki Zakrzewski of Greater Good Science Center contributed to Huffington Post’s blog about the Common Core State Standards and social-emotional learning, or SEL with a consideration, “Do the Common Core State Standards undermine social-emotional learning?” The post can be accessed here.

Where does your perspective fall? Do you believe that the SEL is threaded through the fabric of the CCSS?
