NHSLMA Luncheon - Anita's luncheon presentation focuses on innovative thinking about how social emotional learning can be implemented in school libraries and schools. Explore suggestions, tips, and strategies for all types of learners from the perspective of a library that has successfully implemented Social Emotional Learning into the curriculum and programming. Discover how to personalize the learning for students through collaboration with the school counseling department and town services along with courses, resources, and relevant pedagogy. Hear about effective implementation of programming, instruction, and collaboration with proven learning outcomes. A few examples of curriculum/programming include: bibliotherapy collaborations with the adjustment counselor for specialized book discussion groups (ie: divorce, grit); instructional strategies such as Guided Inquiry Design which includes understanding how students experience research; serving as a venue for student voice through poetry club/slams and musical performances; collaborations with the public library and youth and family services as well as the National Alliance on Mental Illness; yoga/mindfulness and contemplative strategies. (Presenter(s): Anita Cellucci, School Librarian, Westborough High School)
