Coalition of Essential Schools

When teachers at Kentucky’s Fairdale High School were planning the start of their Essential School program, principal Marilyn Hohmann likes to recall, some of them spent a full week shadowing students through their daily schedules. By week’s end, they were overwhelmed – not by the demands of student life, but by its passive and anonymous nature. If their program could do only one thing, they decided, it must be to turn those qualities around, to energize the students into forging an active personal stake in their own education. Today, Fairdale schedules a daily half-hour Teacher Guided Assistance period for all students – an advisory group in which 17 mixed-grade students work individually and together on both personal and academic matters. A whopping 90 percent of students call it the best thing about their school.

"Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes tells the poignant story of Charlie Gordon, a man with a low IQ who undergoes experimental surgery to increase his intelligence, leading to profound personal growth and subsequent heartache as he grapples with the treatment's temporary effects. This narrative explores themes of human intelligence, the ethics of scientific experimentation, and the emotional challenges associated with rapid intellectual and personal changes, making it a powerful resource for discussing empathy and ethical decision-making in social and emotional learning contexts.

In a special anniversary edition, Louis Sachar's "Holes" tells the tale of Stanley Yelnats, cursed by his family history, unjustly sent to Camp Green Lake where boys dig holes daily under the guise of character-building. As Stanley unravels the mystery behind the digging, a darkly humorous narrative of crime, punishment, and redemption unfolds, complemented by bonus content including a new note from the author and fascinating trivia about the book.

Let’s Get Real examines issues that lead to taunting and bullying, including racial differences, perceived sexual orientation, learning disabilities, religious differences, sexual harassment and others. Name-calling and bullying are at epidemic proportions among youth across the country, and are often the root causes of violence in schools. Let’s Get Real gives young people the chance to tell their stories in their own words–and the results are heartbreaking, shocking, inspiring and poignant. Unlike the vast majority of films made for schools about the issue, Let’s Get Real doesn’t sugarcoat the truth or feature adults lecturing kids about what to do when “bad” kids pick on them.

If it weren’t for the 57 bus, Sasha and Richard never would have met. Both were high school students from Oakland, California, one of the most diverse cities in the country, but they inhabited different worlds. Sasha, a white teen, lived in the middle-class foothills and attended a small private school. Richard, a Black teen, lived in the economically challenged flatlands and attended a large public one. Each day, their paths overlapped for a mere eight minutes. But one afternoon on the bus ride home from school, a single reckless act left Sasha severely burned, and Richard charged with two hate crimes and facing life imprisonment. The case garnered international attention, thrusting both teenagers into the spotlight. But in The 57 Bus, award-winning journalist Dashka Slater shows that what might at first seem like a simple matter of right and wrong, justice and injustice, victim and criminal, is something more complicated―and far more heartbreaking. Awards and Accolades for The 57 Bus: A New York Times Bestseller Stonewall Book Award Winner YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults Finalist A Boston Globe-Horn Book Nonfiction Honor Book Winner A TIME Magazine Best YA Book of All Time A Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist Don’t miss Dashka Slater’s newest propulsive and thought-provoking nonfiction book, Accountable: The True Story of a Racist Social Media Account and the Teenagers Whose Lives It Changed, the YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction Winner which National Book Award winner Ibram X. Kendi hails as “powerful, timely, and delicately written.”

Adapted from "The Best Schools: How Human Development Research Should Inform Educational Practice" (ASCD, 2006), this material emphasizes that the best schools prioritize the true developmental needs of students over mere academic achievement. By understanding the stages of development from infancy to adulthood and integrating human development theory with educational practice, schools can focus on developing the whole human being. To guide this approach, the author propose structuring schools around four key developmental components, which are crucial at all ages but particularly significant at specific growth stages.

He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow. This improbable story of Christopher's quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.

The brief draws from brain science, medicine, economics, psychology, and education research to describe why it is essential to address the social, emotional, and cognitive dimensions of learning; how these dimensions together shape students’ academic and life outcomes; and how these competencies can be taught throughout childhood, adolescence, and beyond. The evidence outlined in this brief moves the nation beyond the debate as to whether schools should attend to students’ social and emotional development, to how schools can integrate social, emotional, and academic development into their daily work.
