Course Syllabus

Learning how to become emotionally literate is one of the best investments that teachers can make for themselves and their students. The capacity to deal with emotions positively is an essential element of good health. Quite often our students struggle with everyday situations that take place in and out of the school setting. Because of this, many students are unable to become productive members of the class until they find some way to express their feelings and emotions. This course is designed to help teachers develop a learning environment that promotes emotional wellness through the exposure of various forms of literature. By the end of this course, participants will have a variety of activities and book lists to assist them in developing an emotionally literate environment.
