The resources on this page are designed to support educators developing or adapting lessons to incorporate social, emotional, and academic development (SEAD) themes with grade-level mathematics aligned to the Standards for Mathematical Practice and college- and career-ready standards. While attending to social emotional learning (SEL) is a helpful step towards creating classrooms where students feel connected and empowered, SEL in isolation is not a comprehensive approach to truly supporting students to see themselves as mathematicians and engage in vibrant discussions and critical thinking about the the content of the mathematics of the grade.

The lesson planning template on this page is derived from Stride 3: A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction: Creating Conditions to Thrive.
