Nonfiction and Fiction with a Focus on Emotion Vocabulary
The SEL Teen Literacy Library is a unique solution that uses nonfiction and fiction to help teens think about and discuss topics critical to successful social interactions and emotional health. With the increase in digital forms of communication and the increased pressures of today’s world, schools are facing new challenges in supporting students and helping them learn social and emotional skills. Organized around 12 critical SEL topics that cover both self-awareness and social awareness, this collection of hi-lo books is the perfect addition to any middle or high school classroom or library.
Because recognizing and dealing with emotions is such an important aspect of social and emotional learning, emphasis is placed on 60 emotion words (5 for each topic). Each emotion is represented on a traditional vocabulary card with a photo on one side and the word and the definition on the other and on an Emoti-Card featuring an illustration of the emotion with facial cues and gestures to help students better identify that emotion when interacting with others. Together with extensive instructional support in the form of lessons, activities, role-plays, and assessments, the books and cards in this collection provide the perfect solution to incorporating SEL instruction into content area classes.
Sold separately on a thumb drive, the student activities are a great option for extending instruction through independent activities. The 72 activities include six activities per topic and feature graphic organizers along with an array of reading and writing tasks.
