Improving classroom quality with The RULER Approach to social and emotional learning: Proximal and distal outcomes
The RULER Approach is designed to improve the quality of classroom interactions through professional development and classroom curricula that infuse emotional literacy instruction into teaching–learning interactions. A 2-year, cluster randomized controlled trial was conducted to test hypotheses derived from this theory. Findings highlight the important contribution of emotional literacy training and development in creating engaging, empowering, and productive learning environments.
