Asset type: Analytical, evidence-based suite; supports credibility of SEAD efforts and change management efforts

Purpose: This suite of social media-ready images with text can be used in any sequence and on any schedule to promote your organization’s efforts to integrate social, emotional, and academic development in school and out-of-school learning environments. These images feature succinct quotes or summary statements produced by meticulously mining the leading scholarship and research on the science of learning, human development, school climate and culture, teacher development, and evidence-based social and emotional learning programming and implementation. These statements are not opinions or sales language, but facts, based on rigorous and robust science.
