Emotions - hardwired or taught?

Nicola Preston's presentation to the IIRP UK & Ireland 2012 Conference includes the following slide:

This slide could be a great starting point for reviewing current arrangements for Social and Emotional Learning in any school.

In particular it raises the questions of 
  • what (emotions) will be taught, and 
  • what pedagogies will be used.
Obviously conventional notions of curriculum as delivered content are unlikely to be all that successful. Rather it is necessary to situate much of the learning within the everyday lived (emotional) experience of the students and other members of the school community.  Fortunately there is a rich set of everyday possibilities available - see Pedagogies for SEL
