Building students’ social-emotional capacity through reading and discussing books enhances their ability to experience successful relationships in school and more importantly now the interactions they have at home and in their neighborhoods. By inviting students to read and then have meaningful conversations about books, you offer models for building trusting relationships with peers and adults while promoting the importance of making responsible decisions.
