When reading cluster 11 I was particularly interested in the section of emotional self-regulation and how to encourage this type of self-regulation in the classroom.  Woolfolk (2013) suggests some ways in which to foster emotional self-regulation in the classroom.  This can be done with creating a climate of trust, working with students to express their feelings and to pick up on the emotions of others through social cues and facial expressions.  Additionally, it is important to teach students how to cope with the emotions they are having and to recognize that different cultures express emotions differently.  Emotional self-regulation is important for a child's academic and personal development. 

Check out this video about emotional self-regulation.
