The Relationship Between SEL and Literacy: Working Together to Empower Children

Jenny Eisenman, Reading Plus
Grades: K-8
The post-pandemic education landscape will present renewed opportunities for engaging young people. We must encourage students to navigate their own learning paths by empowering them with the competencies and skills needed for  success in school and in life. This session will focus on the relationship between social-emotional learning and literacy, and how together, the two can empower our children. By promoting student agency through choice in reading, offering “mirror” and “window” texts that help them relate to shared experiences and discover the larger world, providing a personalized learning path that increases academic achievement, and affirming the teacher/student relationship, we can help our students become confident, empowered, responsible learners.
