I wonder how practicing gratitude could be translated into formalized PD? If we, as educators, continue to practice our gratitude in a structured way (such as journaling), we too can turn it into habit and experience the benefits, which will ultimately translate into your last point about leading by example.

I particularly appreciate the last point. Kids pay attention to what we do and, for better or worse, they'll emulate us. We have to be the kinds of people we want them to grow into.

A fine article. Does anyone know the status of Rep. Tim Ryan's social-emotional legislation that he recently introduced to Congress?

William James applied some of this in his approach to acting an emotion to produce that emotion as effect of acting it. Nearly 500 years ago Luther wanted to stop preaching on faith as he did not experience it. His mentor Von Staupitz advised: "Preach until you have it!" A similar approach!

For more than two decades I have researched and applied the double topic: holistic accelerated second language learning and the negative effects of anxiety and stress in this respect. Your series dovetails with my thinking and I will be using your thinking and writing to augment my own. Thanks a lot haere@xtra.co.nz

What you see is what you get, and what you give attention to grows. The more that students know they have a choice in how to respond to situations, the more empowered they can be about creating a positive future. Thanks also for sharing your excellent resource. I enjoyed it thoroughly!

Thanks Sharonda!

It is so true. Teachers have so much to cover that it can feel like a luxury to step back and take a long term perspective. But that is one of the most important contributions that can be made. Love to hear your thoughts when you try the activities :)

I wholeheartedly agree. If all teachers, and parents for that matter, realized that they are modeling behavior all the time, there would be far fewer issues to deal with.
We have more influence than we know , and much of it is nonverbal. Neuroscience refers to mirror neurons as the scientific underpinning, but I think it just makes sense. Greater awareness is the key. Thanks for sharing this important point.
