Social and Emotional Learning in Out-of-School Time: Foundations and Futures

"It is now time to demonstrate the value of the practitioners by supporting efforts to codify 'what and how' lessons to create a field of adult practice that focuses on modeling, teaching and enabling social and emotional development through active reflection and engagement."

Karen Pittman, president and CEO of the Forum, charges us to move beyond demonstrating the value of "where" and "when" in out-of-school time settings in a recent publication of the Information Age Publishing (IAP) series, "Current Issues in Out-of-School Time."

This volume contains chapters from experts in the field, including staff from the Forum's Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality, as well as a closing commentary from Karen Pittman, and focuses on social and emotional learning from a variety of perspectives to offer a clear framing of SEL in relation to other OST concepts and initiatives.
