Social and emotional learning (SEL) helps youths understand how to set and achieve positive goals, establish positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. This workshop presents SEL learning in the context of youth-developed comic books. Dr. Bitz and Dr. Mulholland, who have been working together for over 10 years, will present the SEL framework developed by Sanford Harmony, a no-cost SEL program. Then they will highlight tools and strategies that promote SEL through the process of writing, designing, and publishing comic books. The workshop will provide participants with no-cost, web-based resources that can help them lead their own comic book clubs with a focus on social and emotional learning.
