  1. 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.
