Incorporation of Illinois Social and Emotional Learning Standards into Educator Preparation Programs
Illinois institutions of higher education are now required to incorporate the Illinois State Board’s Social and Emotional Learning Standards into their educator preparation programs. Requiring incorporation of the standards into educator preparation programs will ensure that teachers, administrators and pupil support personnel have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide instruction specific to social and emotional development; assess students’ social and emotional skills; and respond to children with social, emotional, or mental health problems that have an impact on their ability to learn.
In response to this new mandate, ISBE has developed a guidance document and accompanying appendices to assist curriculum developers as they plan for and work toward this endeavor. Below are the links to the draft guidance document and accompanying appendices:
