The link between academic success and well-being.

Our Approach

Academic settings can pose particular challenges for supporting students in all the ways teachers want to. There’s a lot of content to cover, and in limited time. Adding social-emotional focuses to the mix doesn’t have to take time away from teaching the curriculum. Instead, it should enhance how the curriculum is taught.

Contributive Learning seamlessly weaves social-emotional and academic learning in everyday instruction. It makes the experience of teaching and learning more engaging for students and teachers alike.

A Series of Professional Development Workshops

A nested professional development approach driven by transformational teams blending the curriculum and social-emotional learning.

School and Administrative Leadership Teams

Leading Contributive Learning

How we measure and assess SEL

Contributive Learning provides resources and tools to design, implement, and measure social-emotional learning.

Teachers start by connecting with students, learning about who they are, and then picking the SEL Skills and Objectives most aligned with their needs. From there, they use our assessment and measurement tools in the everyday learning process to work simultaneously toward each set of objectives—curricular, social, and emotional.

This enhances and maximizes learning time while providing meaningful data for teachers and schools.

All of our workshops are

  • Actionable and personalized for all leaders and teachers
  • Manageable for everyday application in classrooms and schools
  • Data informed and evidence driven
  • Student centered
