In this helpful book, you’ll learn how to seamlessly infuse social-emotional learning into your middle school English language arts curriculum. With the growing emphasis on student assessment and learning outcomes, many teachers find they lack the time and the encouragement to begin implementing SEL techniques into their instruction. This book offers a solution in the form of practical lesson plans—all of which can be implemented without tedious preparation and all of which are designed to boost self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and other key SEL skills. Your students will discover how to…

    • Practice mindfulness and think positively,
    • Exert self-control and employ self-management skills,
    • Become independent thinkers and make sound decisions,
    • Be resilient and develop a growth mindset,
    • Improve relationship skills and avoid bullying,
    • Be authentic and develop leadership skills,
    • And much more!

Each activity is ELA-focused, so students will develop social-emotional learning while meeting key literacy objectives such as reading a nonfiction speech, looking closely at symbolism, analyzing Shakespearean sonnets, and more. The book also includes reproducible tools for classroom use. You can photocopy them or download them as eResources from
