Social and Emotional Support for English Language Learners

Student using mood meter

The following resources highlight many different aspects of social and emotional learning (SEL) and supports for English language learners (ELLs) and immigrant students. This section also includes articles and video projects that highlight how schools around the country are supporting SEL in diverse communities.

Note: We have created two separate SEL resource sections related to ELLs and immigrant students. Many of the topics and considerations overlap, but it is also important to keep in mind that not all ELLs are immigrants and vice versa.
