5 Ways to Build Social Emotional Learning through Literacy

Throughout the pandemic, students were exposed to in-person, online, and/or hybrid learning environments. As such, they have not experienced optimal learning environments for developing social and emotional learning (SEL) skills. With the return to in-person learning in the new school year, it is critical that students get the support they need to build their SEL skills. Promoting social and emotional development for all students in our classrooms involves teaching and modeling social and emotional skills, allowing students to practice and fine-tune those skills, and providing students a chance to apply these skills in various situations.

One of the most popular SEL approaches embeds SEL instruction into content areas such as English language arts, social studies, or math. In this session, we will look at literacy as one of the avenues to teach the social-emotional skills that students need to thrive in school and beyond.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Discover the foundation of social and emotional learning and how to integrate it into the classroom’s daily instruction seamlessly.
  • Review text cards that feature untold stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things to work on literacy skills while focusing on SEL instruction.
  • Investigate the idea that high-quality interactions matter and how to incorporate them in any lesson plan.
