What is this?
This Month in SEL is a monthly email newsletter that curates the latest articles, policy updates, research, case studies, and resources from the field of social-emotional learning (and, more broadly, education). For a sample of what our content will look (and sound) like, here are some of our previous publications.
Who is this for?
Anyone who is remotely curious about what’s happening in the world of social-emotional learning. Our community includes educators, social workers, school psychologists, administrators, my mother, researchers, parents, students, and counselors. We know that “social-emotional learning” is one of the most over-used and buzz-wordy terms in education right now; our goal is to cut through all the noise and focus on bringing you the most relevant content each month.
Who are you?
My name is Nick Woolf and I am a passionate advocate for crafting authentic and engaging stories that help educators understand how social-emotional learning, family engagement, and educational technologies can positively and equitably benefit every student that they serve.
In 2018, I started a blog — Inside SEL — to help deepen my knowledge of social-emotional learning and share SEL-related news with a wider audience.
Why did you decide to start this?
When I started looking for news websites and blogs to follow so that I could learn more about social-emotional learning and stay on top of the latest news, I could not find a single outlet that provided curated content across multiple sources that was specifically focused on SEL. I personally subscribe to many weekly and monthly e-newsletters and felt that the field could benefit from one devoted to news about SEL.
How often will this come out?
We publish the newsletter once a month, every month. Expect it in your inbox towards the end of each month, so that you can get caught up on all of the top headlines from the previous ~30 days.

We hope that you join us and find value in what we send.
Whoever you are: Thanks, as always, for reading.
