Expanding Our Universe: Building SEL Through Reading True, Teen-Written Stories
The poet, Muriel Rukeyser, wrote that: “The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.” Telling personal stories is at the heart of Youth Communication’s work and, the way we see it, at the core of our humanity. To be human means to be a storyteller and that inextricably ties into the social and emotional strengths of both the storyteller and the audience.

In a webinar designed to explore this connection, Youth Communication staff will use excerpts from two of our true, teen-written stories to examine how SEL shows up in those stories themselves and how participants develop their own SEL by reading that story. We’ll also explore how, in order to implement effective SEL practices, our work and curricula must be culturally responsive. Stories—telling them, sharing them, and reading them in community--is the way to make sure of it.
