Children’s literature as a framework for SEL

Webinar description

Children’s literature has a big impact on the development and shaping of children’s personality. Quality children’s books display ideas, ethical dilemmas, moral values, problem solving techniques, emotional management and relationships among the protagonists, all of which contribute to the moral, social and emotional development of young children.

SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) is defined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) as “the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions”. CASEL’s Widely Used Framework Identifies Five Core Competencies: Self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making.
