Embedding social-emotional learning (SEL) in literacy instruction has the power to create inclusive classroom spaces that center students, amplify their voices, and unpack and heal potential trauma.
In this ILA Resource Collection, we examine connections between reading, writing, and developing social-emotional skills, as well as how SEL-integrated literacy instruction leads to stronger school communities and increased academic success.
