Literacy and Social and Emotional Learning: A Natural Fit

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

Literacy and social and emotional learning (SEL) are a natural fit, so why not address SEL school wide within your already dedicated literacy space? The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) supports the integration of SEL into the content areas, as it provides a ripe opportunity for teaching and practicing SEL. In this session we will explore ways to: 
  • Identify SEL programming currently in place but hidden in plain sight as a reading curriculum at your school
  • Minimize demands for more prep by including SEL in your current ELA block
  • Amplify gains in the literacy classroom throughout the whole school
  • Connect literacy-based approaches to student self-regulation and behavior
  • Get all stakeholders—even those with full plates—on board
