This video and supporting blog article looks at how Washoe County, Nevada is measuring Social Emotional Learning (SEL) to gauge growth and improve instruction. It includes lots of footage of SEL lessons in progress as well as interviews with staff.  This EdWeek article provides more details on the development of the district’s SEL measures with input from students.

Educators and leaders in other districts interested in building their SEL programs will find these resources helpful. Researchers will also be interested in this example of district-wide measurement of SEL skills which are often difficult to asses.
