To meet the complexities of today's world, we need more than intelligence--we need emotional literacy. Emotional literacy means having the skills to understand and manage emotions, to communicate effectively, and to become an autonomous person. Unfortunately, many of us are not emotionally literate enough to help others, let alone ourselves. This book combines strategies and skills with theory and research to identify some of the key skills, maps, and tools needed to learn emotional literacy.

The author offers jargon-free language, sidebar notes, and handy chapter summaries to help teachers foster the development of emotional literacy. Hands-on classroom examples and strategies support the ideas, and templates illustrate application of the techniques in specific settings. Hints and tips from the field are interwoven in the text.

This book is an excellent introduction to emotional literacy for teachers, principals, and staff developers, as well as teacher preparation faculty.
