Secondary English Language and Literature teachers willing to integrate Social and Emotional Learning in their daily teaching


Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. The purpose of this workshop is to take advantage of the pedagogical potential of short stories to delve into Social and Emotional Learning. To this end, we will read some stories and carry out some activities in order to encourage discussion among participants.

N.B.: Participants are requested to read 6 short stories before the session, which will be provided beforehand via email.


- General overview of the state-of-the-art theory and definition of SEL
- Discussion and exploration of the instructional methods commonly used in SEL
- Discussion and exploration of different short stories that delve into SEL
- Discussion of the importance and/or effectiveness of SEL in school and life success


Presentation and discussion of the definition of SEL. Exploration of the instructional methods commonly used in SEL. Discussion and exploration of different short stories that delve into SEL. Guided group reflection and exchange of ideas on the main issues raised by the theory and the hands-on practice regarding the importance and/or effectiveness of SEL in school and life success.
