Three ways to build social- emotional learning into classroom culture

Social-emotional learning (SEL) has gained wide attention in today’s classrooms, and several schools have devoted as much as 10% of their time toward teaching these skills. Fortunately, relationship-building is a key component in SEL instruction—and there are certain things educators can do to maximize this advantage and use SEL time to get to know their learners.

Administrators can support their teachers by making sure they have access to appropriate resources (e.g., texts that are culturally relevant and include SEL themes) and training in student-centered SEL instruction. Even if you don’t have access to Newsela’s SEL Collection, your teachers can still use Newsela content to support social-emotional learning.
