NJCTE Spring 2020 Conference: SEL & ELA: Literacy for Life
According to CASEL.org, social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. The Spring 2020 NJCTE conference theme, “SEL & ELA: Literacy for Life,” invites educators to share their expertise in creating and sustaining social and emotional learning through the English Language Arts in their classrooms and schools.
Our Featured Speaker: 2020 Becker Award Recipient Adib Khorram
ADIB KHORRAM is the author of DARIUS THE GREAT IS NOT OKAY. If he’s not writing (or at his day job as a graphic designer), you can probably find him trying to get his 100-yard Freestyle under a minute, learning to do a Lutz Jump, or steeping a cup of oolong. He lives in Kansas City, Missouri, where people don’t usually talk about themselves in the third person. You can find him on Twitter (@adibkhorram), Instagram (@adibkhorram), or on the web at adibkhorram.com.
