The ongoing Progress in Education series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. Schools are institutions that sail in the tempest of educational issues, reforms, strategies, data and tools, as well as reflect changes in society. Embedded in all of these are technology, diversity, and innovation - their inevitability has been demonstrated in our schools and communities. The first chapter of this volume focuses on the importance of social and emotional learning (SEL) during the preschool period. The following chapters examine emotions in prospective secondary teachers' first teaching experiences; examine a series of events that took place in West Germany at a specialised school for students with emotional and social needs; review entrepreneurial education in Europe today, the requirements of these programs and issues with how these programs are currently being delivered and explores the use of mentoring in supporting such programs and methods and best practices in the area of VET entrepreneurial education; discusses supervision as a personnel development device; examines how the multi-tiered educational system influenced teachers' implementation of the ELA CCSS; and discusses common core state standards and teacher preparation for teaching complex texts with close reading strategy.
