SEL4NJ Social Emotional Learning Alliance for New Jersey: Autumn 2020 Update
Welcome to All of You Who Have Recently Joined SEL4NJ
Welcome to all of the new SEL4NJ supporters who joined this past quarter! As of today we now have over 1,060 registered supporters – please feel free to forward on the web-site SEL4NJ.org to colleagues and others who may be interested in being part of this growing movement.
CASEL recently revised the definition of SEL as well as updating the CASEL SEL wheel. Panorama Ed has provided a very helpful overview and analysis of the changes – we are including a link here to the report. In the report is also a link to the CASEL webinar launching the changes. The changes are welcome and important – well worth a read and a watch. Link – CASEL New SEL Definition – Panorama Ed
COVID and Equity
We are re-launching our Landscape Analysis teams.
Specifically, the teams will be looking at how current conditions in education – Covid and exacerbated long standing equity issues – are impacting the key landscape analysis areas that were identified 24 months ago. Below are listed the different focus areas and the teams – if you are interested in participating (all are welcome and encouraged to join) please add your name to the google doc. It is important to have new voices and experiences represented – we look forward to hearing from you! Link – Sign-up Sheet Landscape Analysis Teams.

SEL4NJ is a totally volunteer run organization – we have exciting and important work going on and in the pipeline. To make it happen we need a few more hands. We are looking for individuals to help with:
- Social media
- Database and CRM (organizing our email lists and supporters in Action Network)
- SEL Day 2021 (details coming soon!)
