Application of Emotional Intelligence in Elementary Education Classrooms Teacher preparation programs do not train teachers about emotional intelligence; nor do they train teachers how to integrate emotional intelligence into daily activities and the classroom environment. Focusing on emotional intelligence in the classroom can positively influence a child's learning, growth and development, and role in the social environment we all live. The following research project investigates the research on emotional intelligence, how it is used in the classroom, how it leads to student success, and how educators can encourage personal emotional inquiry and emotional intelligence in social and personal situations. The project culminates with a resource handbook that helps educators use emotional intelligence methods for improvement in the classroom.
