The Newsela SEL Collection

As Illinois students continue to deal with the challenges brought on by the pandemic, social-emotional skill development is more important than ever and SEL between classes won’t be enough. But with so much academic content to cover as part of learning recovery, schools and districts need a way to embed SEL in subject-area instruction.

With The Newsela SEL Collection, you can empower teachers to integrate SEL into core literacy instruction with content that is relevant
and relatable. The collection:

● Aligns to the CASEL framework
● Fosters more inclusive, identity-affirming classrooms
● Provides instructional supports and lesson ideas for every text.
