Despite growing attention to the importance of grit and other character traits for achievement, developing them in students rarely finds its way into secondary school curricula. Authors Barbara Cervone and Kathleen Cushman investigate the exceptions, telling the stories of five high schools with a national reputation for infusing rigorous academics with social and emotional learning, which results in demonstrable benefits for students.

Based on extensive interviews and on-site visits, the book identifies six elements that all of these schools have in common, including advisories and other structural supports for students and teachers; rituals and other means for establishing an intentional, reflective, and respectful community as well as a firm commitment to restorative justice; and a broad and engaging curriculum that includes service learning.

Featuring the voices of educators and students alike, Belonging and Becoming not only shows how these schools stand out for their high degree of caring and success, but makes a strong case for why other schools should be inspired to take up the challenge and replicate their efforts.

From the Back Cover:

Despite growing attention to the importance of grit and other character traits for achievement, developing such qualities rarely figures in secondary school curricula. Based on extensive interviews and on-site visits, Belonging and Becoming tells the stories of five high schools with a national reputation for infusing rigorous academics with social and emotional learning and the demonstrable benefits that result for students.

“When educators ask me for practical advice about how to enhance the social, emotional, and academic development of high school students, I will urge them to read, discuss, and implement powerful strategies from this book. Belonging and Becoming is a game-changer that can improve the educational experiences, learning, and development of millions of high school students.”
—Roger P. Weissberg, chief knowledge officer, Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)

“In this engaging new book, Barbara Cervone and Kathleen Cushman capture five compelling cases, teaching us that thoughtful, purposeful integration of social and emotional learning combined with rigorous project-based learning results in high levels of academic achievement, strong attendance, low dropout rates, and a high percentage of students going to college.”
—Ellen Moir, founder and CEO, New Teacher Center

“Barbara Cervone and Kathleen Cushman have wonderfully captured the essentials needed for high schools to focus on both academic growth and healthy social development. Their work will lead to educating all high school students to be able to respond to the challenges and opportunities they routinely face through intentional efforts on academic, social, and emotional learning.”
—Paul Goren, superintendent, Evanston/Skokie District 65, Illinois, and former senior vice president, CASEL

Barbara Cervone has championed high school reform for more than four decades as a researcher, writer, school and program designer, and national grant maker. Kathleen Cushman is a journalist and educator who since 1989 has documented the learning of adolescents in and out of school.

Barbara Cervone, Ed.D., is founder and president of What Kids Can Do, Inc., an international nonprofit organization that promotes the value of young people tackling projects that combine powerful learning with public purpose. Previously, she coordinated Walter H.

Kathleen Cushman has documented the learning of adolescents in and out of school since 1989. A co-founder of What Kids Can Do, she gathered youth voices in WKCD’s books about school culture and climate (the Fires in the Bathroom series), student motivation and mastery (Fires in the Mind and The Motivation Equation), and college access (First in the Family). From 2011 to 2014 she documented the work of the Deeper Learning community of practice brought together by the Hewlett Foundation, and she contributes to the Learning Deeply blog for Education Week. Since 2014 she has consulted to the New Teacher Center’s initiative on social and emotional learning.
