- Trauma-Informed PracticesBy bringing in arts education, this school found a creative way to help heal trauma and encourage a more supportive learning environment.
- AssessmentAllowing students to take a test two times—once from memory and once using their notes—can boost note-taking, study skills, and reading habits, all at once.
- Communication SkillsWith a simple discussion activity that gets every learner in the class speaking and listening, teachers can help students boost conversation skills—and develop their opinions.

- Collaborative LearningWhen students pretend they’re at a fancy party making small talk, a simple brainstorm for writing ideas becomes more lively, more cooperative—and more effective.
- English Language LearnersWhen social and emotional learning is integrated into language arts, elementary students gain a deeper understanding of concepts like empathy and self-awareness. And they’re more engaged in reading and writing, to boot.
