Social and emotional teaching strategies
As a classroom teacher, you play an active role in your students' social and emotional development. This excellent guide offers useful advice and suggestions for classroom teachers seeking to support the emotional growth of the gifted children in their classroom.
Elements associated with social and emotional education include a wide range of personal attributes, including value systems, attitudes, interests, feelings and emotions, interpersonal relationships, and character and leadership.
