The social and emotional welfare of students in both K-12 and higher education settings has become increasingly important during the third decade of the 21st century, as students face a variety of social-emotional learning (SEL) challenges related to a multitude of internal and external factors. As concepts around traditional literacy education evolve and become more culturally and linguistically relevant and responsive, the connections between SEL and academic literacy opportunities warrant considered exploration.

The objective of this publication is to develop a conceptual framework around pedagogical connections to social and emotional teaching and learning within K-12 literacy practices. Invited contributions will span a variety of research and practice protocols supporting student success through the integration of social-emotional learning (SEL) and literacy across grade levels.

The target audience consists of all stakeholders interested in the innovative incorporation of social-emotional learning and literacy practices K-12 and higher education settings. Stakeholders include, but are not limited to curriculum directors, education faculty, educational researchers, instructional facilitators, literacy professionals, practicing teachers, pre-service teachers, professional development coordinators, school counselors, and teacher preparation programs.
