New EdWeek Blog Explores Social-Emotional Aspects of School

Those of you who track curriculum issues here will surely be interested in a new blog we've launched today here at EdWeek.

Called Rules for Engagement, it will explore school climate, which includes a host of nonacademic things that can make or break students' experience in school. We're talking about student behavior and motivation, discipline and classroom management, student health and well-being, social-emotional learning, and a raft of related things that have a profound effect on how students feel about being in school. Unsurprisingly, those things have a powerful influence on how students do on the academic side of the ledger, so curriculum and school culture are inextricably linked.

The blog will be co-authored by Nirvi Shah, who covers special education, as well as bullying, discipline, and student health, and Ross Brenneman, an online producer. Take a look at their first post here. You can sign up to subscribe, and to follow them on Twitter, as well. I'm signing off right now to do both.
