Q: Is EI being integrated into elementary school curriculum in the USA? How has it been approached?
A: There are hundreds of programs for K-6 (and up to grad 12) in use today. They are called “social/emotional learning,” or SEL. They have names like Second Step, Six Seconds, Social Development, PATHS, Resolving Conflict Creatively, and so on.
