• The School Library System (SLS) Cooperative Collection Development Plan is developed as part of the resource sharing component of the plan of service.




Magen David Yeshivah's Growing Hearts & Minds Collection: Social Emotional Learning (print collection) is used by students, parents, and teachers in this K - 8 school.  The collection was curated by Margaret Tice & Julie Goldschmied, Librarians, and by Rose Lee Pifko,  Magen David Yeshivah's  Director of Guidance/School Psychologist. 

The digital Growing Hearts & Minds Collection:  Social Emotional Learning on the Citywide Digital Library was curated by Margaret Tice, Librarian.  This collection is for K - 12 students and the educators who work with them.

Curious to know what Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is all about? 

Looking for ways to improve the culture at your school in order to provide a safe, supportive, and engaging learning environment where students can thrive? 

Searching for the right book to help an anxious student or to support empathy in the classroom? 

The CCD Social Emotional Learning Collection is for students in grades K-12, educators and parents.   Included are resources for educators on developing an SEL curriculum, books about getting along, feelings, emotions, aggression, empathy, mindfulness, self-awareness, relationships, good decision making, and bullying.  Parents and teachers can also find resources here to help guide those important discussions about SEL issues with children.  Students can find great reading materials on the SEL topics that are most important.
