Teaching for Intellectual and Emotional Learning (TIEL) : A Model for Creating Powerful Curriculum
Responsibility, compassion, and self-direction are the kind of balanced, common sense characteristics that both teachers and students should develop.
Yet, in an environment of high stakes testing, common sense and educational balance are often lost amidst constant test preparation.
Teaching for Intellectual and Emotional Learning (TIEL): A Model for Creating Powerful Curriculum will help teachers and teacher educators meet their goals of mastery in basic skills and content knowledge as well as intellectual and social emotional development.
Sharing the experiences of real teachers who changed their teaching and helped their students understand their learning and develop skills of self-direction and collaboration, Folsom introduces a powerful visual model that helps teachers develop standards-based curriculum that includes social-emotional learning. New ways of planning lessons and developing project-based units that focus on developing thinking skills and social emotional learning are presented.
The TIEL model makes the fundamental intellectual and social emotional processes that underlie effective teaching and learning accessible to teacher educators, teachers, and students in gifted, special, and general education.
