Emotional Literacy in the Middle School is a field-tested program for implementing a robust and effective social and emotional learning (SEL) curriculum middle schools. Designed by the top experts in the field of emotional intelligence and SEL, the six-step process creates a holistic intellectual, emotional, and social framework that enhances learning by helps students connect content to their everyday experiences.

Through activities such as self-reflection, analysis of academic material and current events, classroom discussions, interactions with family members, artistic designs and interactive writing projects, students acquire a deep and complete understanding of words as whole concepts. This increases the probability of long-term storage and spontaneous usage because memory is coded to specific events linked to social and emotional situations.
