    Thanks for your thoughts. I wholeheartedly agree that social-emotional learning is more important now than ever, particularly as the social contexts are changing. Your note about service learning being extremely important and I agree completely. Having said that I also believe there is a fight to recognize – but the uninterested or ininvolved – that service learning isn’t really something different from “normal” teaching at all but actually just really good teaching in an authentic context. There are better or not-so-good service learning experience much like non-SL but our task often is challenged by the assumption that service learning belongs in the “miscellaneous” category of learning rather than the center of it, where I believe it should be.
