REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

There is a growing recognition that teaching emotional literacy is as equally important to pupil development as the academic curriculum. Increasing levels of dissatisfaction with school (both by pupils and teachers), rising levels of
interpersonal violence, a lowering of the age at which such violence is noted, and stagnation in the progress of academic improvement as measured by school based and external testing are cited as evidence for this.The document present steps of how to develop emotional literacy in schools.
