It discusses students’ psychosocial skills both as components of academic success and desired educational outcomes in grades K through 12. The book describes an organizing framework for psychosocial skills and examines a range of specific constructs that includes achievement, motivation, self-efficacy, creativity, emotional intelligence, resilience, and the need for cognition. In addition, it reviews specific school-based interventions and examines issues that concern the malleability of psychosocial skills. It addresses issues relating to the integration of psychosocial skills into school curriculum as well as large-scale assessment policies. Topics featured in this book include: Development of psychosocial skills in grades K-12. Assessment of psychosocial skills. Conscientiousness in education and its relation to meaningful educational outcomes. Creativity in schools, including theory, assessment, and interventions.
