The Prosocial Classroom: Teacher Social and Emotional Competence in Relation to Student and Classroom Outcomes
The authors describe a model of the prosocial classroom. This model highlights the importance of teachers' social and emotional competence (SEC) and well-being in the development and maintenance of supportive teacher-student relationships, effective classroom management, and successful social and emotional learning program implementation. The model proposes that these factors contribute to creating a classroom climate that is more conducive to learning and that promotes positive developmental outcomes among students. Finally, the authors propose a research agenda to address the potential efficacy of intervention strategies designed to promote teacher SEC and improved learning outcomes for students.

'Lesson study' is a professional learning approach in which teachers work together to: formulate goals for student learning and long-term development; collaboratively plan a 'research lesson' designed to bring to life these goals; conduct the lesson in a classroom, with one team member teaching and others gathering evidence on student learning and development. They then discuss the evidence gathered during the lesson, using it to improve the lesson, the unit, and instruction more generally. In this article, a lesson study case from a Japanese elementary school is presented.
