Inhaltsangabe: Emotional Literacy in the Middle School is a well-designed, field-tested curriculum that enhances social and emotional learning. No other program can do so much at one time, be used as a preventative tool against the perils all children face such as substance abuse and violence, and be integrated across the curriculum to enhance both intellectual and emotional growth. Unlike other programs that focus mostly on theory and research findings, this one presents teachers with six concrete "how to" steps for quick and easy implementation. The program has 60 lessons and can be used for whole classrooms, with reproducible materials for student use, as well as supporting teacher materials.
Über den Autor: Marvin Maurer, M.A.--Emotional Literacy in the Middle School was originally conceptualized and created as the "Little People Feeling Words Curriculum" in the early 70's by Mr. Maurer, who began his career as a middle school Social Studies, English and Math teacher in upstate New York. Throughout the last 30 years, Mr. Maurer has implemented programs pertaining to the role of emotions and their importance in the learning process. In addition, as a presenter for the New York State Department of Education, he championed the need for affective education with traditional curriculum. Mr. Maurer also designed the first gifted program for the Monticello, NY school system and has worked as a learning disabilities consultant within the school system and as a private practitioner. Mr. Maurer currently teaches for universities and colleges in the state of Florida and maintains a private practice of clients with whom he uses the strategies of Emotional Literacy in the Middle School.

He has also developed a theoretical model and measurement tool of the Life Space, which organizes a person's external surroundings to provide extensive external criteria to test associations between internal personality characteristics and people's behavior. Dr. Brackett regularly teaches introductory and personality psychology at Yale and works with school systems and corporations in the areas of assessment, training, and leadership development.
