Explores how teachers modify their SEL teaching practices and curricula to incorporate a transformative SEL focus on community issues and social justice and illustrates how teachers at one middle school in Chicago stretched from conventional notions of SEL to engage social justice issues more proactively in their SEL implementation in four key ways: Connecting through Language, Connecting to Students’ Social Identities, Addressing Social Issues, and Encouraging Civic Engagement and Activism.
