Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. explain the relationship between teacher beliefs and social–emotional learning (SEL) programs and practices.
  2. measure teacher beliefs for universal SEL program planning and professional development efforts.
  3. describe how consideration of teacher SEL beliefs fits into a comprehensive role as outlined by the NASP Practice Model.

Description

Implementation science suggests that teacher beliefs can facilitate or hinder effective social–emotional learning (SEL) in schools. We developed a new measure, the Assessment of School Social–Emotional Teaching (ASSET), to assess teacher beliefs salient to the implementation of SEL programs and practices. We present initial psychometric evidence for the scale and describe its potential utility for school psychologists involved in program planning and professional development related to universal SEL implementation.
