SEFEL Goes to the Library

A session at MLA/DLA Annual Conference 2013

  • Valerie Smirlock

Friday 10th May, 2013

9:15am to 11:15am (EST)

The early years of life present a unique opportunity to lay the foundation for healthy development. These years are shaped by the relationships a child has and school readiness is frequently impacted by a child’s social and emotional development and well-being. The Maryland SEFEL (Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning) initiative works toward infusing SEFEL into early education and care settings for young children. Join Valerie Smirlock from the Maryland State Department of Education as she outlines the concepts behind this model, shares what SEFEL activities can occur in a library and suggests ways that libraries can support social and emotional literacy.
