Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process of looking within yourself and beyond yourself in order to effectively and positively support emotional health and promote the development of social skills. Key studies show that this focus leads to gains in academic achievement, improved behavior, increased resiliency when dealing with stress and challenges, and greater self-confidence while cultivating a general sense of happiness and well-being.
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.
