The content and material at TeenBook are based on principles of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL):

Create: The purpose of this principle is to consciously create a nurturing, caring, and safe environment for children.

Integrate: The key to this principle is to incorporate life- skills education into both academic and non-academic communication.

Communicate: This principle takes into account the larger community, and stresses that we communicate early and often with all stakeholders.

Instruct: The purpose of this principle is to consider social and emotional learning as you would any other subject area - as information and lessons worth explicit, planned instruction.

Empower: This principle gets at the core of any social-emotional learning instructional plan: to empower students to take charge of their own social and emotional learning
