Research indicates that Emotional Intelligence can be measured, can be developed over our life spans, and can have a significant impact on both academic success and life success and happiness in general. In this course students will:
-Learn foundational knowledge about Emotional Intelligence (e.g., history, current trends, existing measures, controversies, comparisons to IQ)
-Assess their current levels of Emotional Intelligence and develop and implement specific plans for growth and progress during the semester and beyond
-Learn and actively use five key emotional literacy skills
-Develop leadership capabilities and the skills inherent in engaging with others
-Teach Emotional Intelligence skills and competencies to Cincinnati Public School students
*Important notes: Beginning the third week of the semester, this class will meet once each week at the elementary school. We will arrange transportation for everyone--a car is not required. Additionally, all students in the class will need to undergo a paper background check in order to volunteer at the public school. The instructors will provide more detail after registration.
Eligibility requirements: Students must have a minimum cumulative University GPA of 3.4. This class is open to all majors and all years.
