Social Emotional Learning SEL 6th Grade


The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of direction instruction of social and emotional learning skills on academic achievement of sixth grade students. Student academic achievement was assessed by tracking homework completion and student grades at the midterm and end of the third quarter of the academic school year. While the majority of the students participating in the study showed academic growth in higher grades over the course of the study, there was little to no change in the homework completion rate of the students involved. As such, the results of the study were inconclusive as to the impact of the SUITE360 Social and Emotional Learning curriculum.
