ELQ Calls for Manuscripts

Upcoming ELQ Themes

April 2018: Social and Emotional Learning

“Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. For a growing number of schools and districts, SEL has become a coordinating framework for how educators, families, and communities partner to promote students’ social, emotional, and academic learning.”
Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)

This issue considers how SEL is ingrained in the ELA landscape. How do you respond to emerging student needs with SEL?  What curricular decisions are the result of embedding SEL? What types of texts are successful with an SEL focus? What supports are in place for teachers implementing SEL?  What types of professional development are you able to leverage to support SEL efforts? How are your efforts coordinated in the school community? How do you know when SEL is working? Submission deadline: January 15, 2018
