826 National and Stop Bullying: Speak up are launching curricula on 826 Digital with new Social Emotional Learning resources that invite students to write stories on kindness, compassion, and empathy. Educators can choose from a variety of writing standards aligned lessons to bring to their classrooms for free. The SEL Sparks and Lessons were inspired by the Inclusion Storytelling Project.
The 826LA Echo Park location was the first of eight 826 chapters to release and celebrate student work from this new collaboration with an event on December 7, 2017.
