Rolling Out RULER 

A Framework for Developing Emotional Intelligence

RULER—Recognize, Understand, Label, Express, Regulate—is a framework for social-emotional learning developed by professors at Yale University. After attending training courses at Yale during the summer of 2017, our faculty and staff integrated RULER into the curriculum and adapted the framework to best serve our community.

Introduction to RULER at Trinity 
Head of Lower School Jennifer Morgan and Head of Middle School Shanna Weiss introduce the concepts behind RULER and the reasons why they chose to implement RULER at Trinity. (Recorded at a parent meeting on Feb. 23, 2018.)

The 4 Anchors of Emotional Intelligence

RULER utilizes evidence-based tools designed to enhance the emotional intelligence of school leaders, teachers and staff, and students and their families. RULER includes four primary tools, called the Anchors of Emotional Intelligence. Each is based on scientific research and helps children and adults develop their emotional intelligence skills.
