  2. Social Emotional Stories: Lessons and Learning from Plants and Animals

    Storytelling is a learning device used by humans for centuries and for good reason: storytelling is one of the best ways to increase critical thinking skills and social emotional learning (SEL). Social emotional stories combines storytelling with thought-provoking lessons and activities to help primary students improve their self-esteem, increase their engagement with school and give them a sense of empowerment. Educators can use these lessons individually with students, in small groups or with an entire class. The lessons are interdisciplinary and flexible, with only minimal prep time required, allowing educators to adapt them for their situation. Extensive digital content supports the lessons with reproducible forms and a full-colour photo of each plant and animal.

In 5 kinds of nonfiction: Enriching reading and writing instruction with children’s books, Melissa Stewart and Marlene Correia present a new way to sort nonfiction into five major categories and show how doing so can help teachers and librarians build stronger readers and writers.

  10. Improve Every Lesson Plan with SEL

    Jeffrey Benson draws from his 40-plus years of experience as a teacher and an administrator to provide explicit, step-by-step guidance on how to incorporate social and emotional learning (SEL) into F–12 lesson planning – without imposing a separate SEL curriculum. The book identifies SEL skills in three broad categories: skills for self, interpersonal skills and skills as a community member. It offers research-based strategies for seamlessly integrating these skills into every section of lesson plans, from introducing a topic in a way that sparks students’ interest to accessing prior knowledge, providing direct instruction, allowing time for experimentation and discovery, using formative assessment, and closing a lesson in a purposeful rather than haphazard manner.
