Programs that teach Emotional Intelligence in schools have lasting impact
By: Arise 'n' Shine
Arise 'n' Shine, a US-based educational enterprise has transformed the lives of over 50,000 students through its School of English program applying the components of Emotional Intelligence. Now taking another big leap to equip the students of Punjab Association's Schools by integrating Emotional Intelligence in their curriculum, Raj Ganesh, CEO of Arise 'n' Shine promises to dramatically improve the quality of the lives of these students.
When you teach students how to recognise their feelings, understand where they come from and learn how to deal with them, you teach them the most essential skills for their success in life. Research shows that "Young people with high EQ earn higher grades, stay in school, and make healthier choices."
"We've been teaching students as long as 75 years, we face the common challenge of wanting to improve grades and IQ but when designing strategies we frequently overlook important issues. We want to reinvent our teaching by bringing in a program that our students richly deserve", says Ramesh Lamba, General Secretary, Punjab Association.
While India's capital city launched the "happiness curriculum" for its students, our state is yet to put emphasis on student's emotional well-being. "We want to create a sea of change in the teaching environment and a paradigm shift in the way our students and teachers converse in all our 5 schools", emphasises Praveen Mehra, Co-Chairman Education Committee, Punjab Association.
Arise 'n' Shine's School of English focuses on bridging the student's language barriers by nurturing and developing their Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking skills through the integration of Emotional Intelligence and Learning Styles. 5000 students will soon gain the skills needed to lead a productive, healthy and fulfilling life. Together Arise 'n' Shine and Punjab Association are going to make this vision a reality.
