SEL Book List
During a course for my Masters Degree in Human Development, Learning and Culture I completed a course in Social and Emotional Development in Education. I created for my final project a SEL booklist resource to demonstrate my learning. As I am a major fan of picture books and can't resist the urge to browse titles and figure out ways to incorporate books into my classroom and lessons my final project was a SEL booklist on some of the key topics for my course- Mindfulness, Resilience, Empathy, and Bullying. I've found and used some of these great titles. My project gives you a quick glimpse of the storyline an provide some lesson ideas for the classroom. Take a look below and feel free to use, file link for the pdf on google drive is also provided
