How?
FuelEd is based on research from the book
The Social Neuroscience of Education:
Optimizing Attachment and Learning in the Classroom
written by Dr. Louis Cozolino with the
help of Megan Marcus, FuelEd Founder & CEO.

This book makes a case for attachment relationships being placed at the center of schools and classrooms.

“I think more of ways to build the rapport between me and the students. I have seen that this makes a difference in their grades."
“It was helpful to identify how teacher emotions could negatively impact the classroom and acknowledge that TEACHERS are in control of the extent to which they allow this.”
It was interesting to explore how similarities in attachment are observed generation to generation. We recognize the importance of exploring our own attachment with our caregivers and use this to create attachments in our classrooms.”“
Impact
“Today at school I made it a point to practice the three steps of emotional validation with as many teachers and students as I could. I was able to build trust with three students and was able to get a teacher to open up with me on what they were really frustrated about. It was fun, motivating and supremely effective!”
“This pushes me to ask my students about their recent apathy or other emotions I see. I think I avoid doing so because I don't know how to respond but this gives me a way to respond that I think I can try.”
Today's Agenda: Brainstorm & Discuss
Partnership Opportunity:
Pepperdine, FuelEd, & NoVo Foundation
1. Sustainability: influencing pre-service teacher education
What happens after year 1 of implementation?
What's the long term plan to integrate teacher SEL into teacher prep?
2. Marketing: leveraging implementation to drive toward system change
How interested are we in serving as a model and telling our story?
What channels can we use to tell our story and market the process?
3. Evaluation: measuring the impact
What outcomes / data will we track? How?
How to establish a control group?
Engage key faculty

Possible Next Steps
for FuelEd & Pepperdine
Mission: to catalyze a transformation in global society, moving from a culture of domination to one of equality and partnership. We support the development of capacities in people—individually and collectively—to help create a caring and balanced world. We envision a world that operates on the principles of mutual respect, collaboration, and civic participation, thereby reversing the old paradigm predicated on hierarchy, violence, and the subordination of girls and women.
