Social- Emotional Learning-An Investment in our Future Happiness and Well-Being
Emotional Style Questionnaire from the Center for Healthy Minds at University of Wisconsin-Madison
Dr. Richard Davidson is the Founder and Director of the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Dr. Davidson is known for his groundbreaking work on emotions and the brain. His research and work largely focuses on neural bases of EMOTION and EMOTIONAL STYLE as well as methods and strategies to promote healthy, flourishing lives and practices. Dr. Davidson’s work helped to build the KINDNESS CURRICULUM, which is free and available to all children. I have encouraged our teachers and I encourage you to look into how intentionality and taking time to think and act on our strategies or mindful practices encourages healthy, happy children, families and inquisitive, resilient scholars eager to explore and innovate across the curricula.
Please know that all the teachers at Growing Garden Academy are tuned-into our students and are dedicated to providing individualized support to each student in each learning moment. We use our emotional strategies to meet the needs of each student and one another daily.
I encourage you all to have a little look into this great body of work and know that we are engaged in understanding and teaching THE WHOLE CHILD.
