In 2020, the Center for Research in Education and Social Policy (CRESP) at the University of Delaware (UD) entered into a formal research-practice partnership (RPP) with the 4.0 organization. Through funding from multiple organizations, 4.0 works to remove barriers to innovation by investing in community-centered education ideas. Fellowships offered through these investments are based on the Four-C model of coaching, curriculum, community, and cash.
The New Normal Wave (NNW) fellowship program was started in Spring 2020 by 4.0 to address problems stemming from or intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. The fellowship was created to support projects focused on social- emotional learning (SEL) and trauma/healing support. UD-CRESP was contracted to evaluate the NNW initiative. This report outlines evaluation findings from analyses of the NNWdata.
