News Hour Segment on the 4Rs Program
Visit a school where learning to recognize feelings (one’s own and others’) and how to handle them before they get in the way are just as important as traditional academics. On July 21, 2009, the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer aired a segment on the Morningside Center’s programs at Brooklyn’s P.S. 24. The segment highlights the classroom-based 4Rs Program (Reading, Writing, Respect & Resolution), an innovative, research-based approach for fostering students’ social and emotional learning.
