“Of all the books I have read about social-emotional learning in elementary school, this book is by far the most practical and easily applied! Building Blocks for Social-Emotional Learning outlines the entire process of identifying students’ SEL needs and intervening to meet those needs at the schoolwide, classroom, small-group, and individual levels. It covers all aspects of the teaching process, including planning, teaching, checking or assessing for understanding, and reteaching as necessary. With possible next steps for all stakeholders, this practical guide will serve a very specific purpose for elementary schools all over the world.”

“Hulen and Lipsett’s SEL building blocks have a direct impact on both behavior and academic achievement and can act as a bridge between them. Not only does this text provide the why, it also provides the how for effective SEL implementation at the schoolwide level. This is a book that will be recommended to my school’s guiding coalition.”
