My end-of-year “Best” list posts continue…
I’m adding this post to ALL END-OF-YEAR “BEST” LISTS FOR 2021 IN ONE PLACE!
I publish a regular series called SEL Weekly Update, and I thought it would useful to readers and to me to review them and highlight the ones I think are the best of the year.
You might also be interested in “Best” Lists Of The Week: Social Emotional Learning Resources. All my “Best” lists related to SEL, including previous editions of this Best list, can be found there.
Here are my choices from the past six months:
Toolkit: The Foundations of Restorative Justice is from Learning For Justice. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Restorative Practices – Help Me Find More..
