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.
