Building and Sustaining Positive Social and Emotional Climates

The Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence has developed a social–emotional learning program called RULER, which teaches students to do daily check-ins, identifying the energy level and pleasantness of their emotions on a color-coded “mood meter.” Some teachers check in by allowing students to slap various emojis posted outside their doors as they walk into class, or by making eye contact and greeting students one-by-one to see how they respond. Teachers have also adapted check-in strategies for remote environments by asking students to share animated GIFs or key words, or by using social–emotional learning apps. Teachers who perform such check-ins regularly will have a ready tool to gauge how their students are responding to big events, such as political unrest or uncertainty in their own lives.
