Course Introduction

This workshop will provide an overview of the SEL competencies and Ohio standards to surface concerns related to equity and social justice; describe using literacy to read with and against the SEL competencies; and provide exemplar texts (picturebooks and Young Adult novels) as well as key questions that teachers might use in order to interweave SEL competencies and equity into their teaching of quality literature using critical literacy. Attendees will be guided through a critical review of SEL competencies, and we will "try out" the various questions together on sample literary texts in order to support and deepen participants understanding of and practice with critical literacy.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will have a deeper understanding of the Ohio SEL Standards and CASEL competencies; be able to identify their possibilities and limitations in terms of equity, racial, and social justice; and identify quality literature and critical literacy practices to enable ways of reading both "with" and "against" the standards and competencies.
