Social and Emotional Learning Book List to Support Grant

Eight schools in the state were awarded with a Social and Emotional Learning Innovation Grant. The SD State Library has created a resource/book list to assist these schools and ALL SCHOOLS in the state with collection development in terms of social and emotional learning (SEL).

The SEL list is located at library.sd.gov under the School Libraries page. The direct link is: https://library.sd.gov/LIB/SLC/SDSL-SELbooksResources.pdf

The purpose of the grant program is to assist schools in implementing innovative, evidence-based interventions that foster students’ social and emotional learning, which encompasses self-awareness, self-management, relationship skills, social awareness and responsible decision making. Schools will use the funds to implement new SEL interventions or to enhance current SEL interventions over a three-year period.
