Social-Emotional Learning and Writing

There isn’t a teacher practicing today who doesn’t identify with the refrain, “So many things to teach, and so little time.” At the Illinois Writing Project we’ve always believed that you don’t teach writing in isolation. For us writing and reading are interwoven into the entire fabric of our classrooms, including students’ understanding of self and others, interpersonal skills, and sense of efficacy.

About this SEL Workshop

At the heart of this workshop is a recognition of the power of writing and reading to create classrooms and schools where social emotional learning flourishes. This workshop offers
suggestions, activities, and dialogue about social emotional learning that doesn’t gobble up our students’ time but creates a classroom where learning and the love of learning are nurtured.
And this workshop supports existing school-wideprograms as well.

Who is this program for?

This program is designed for classroom teachers, support staff and school leaders of all grade levels, and will be led by experienced IWP teacher/leaders.

15 ISBE Professional Development Hours will be granted upon course completion

OPTIONAL: One (1) Northeastern Illinois University graduate credit hour may be earned. This option requires payment of tuition at NEIU’s graduate credit rate. Contact Dr. Katy Smith at for details about how to register for this credit.
