Hi Varun,

Thanks for reaching out to us. SEL is something very important to Edutopia and we are always excited to hear when others want to use our resources to help spread the word and get more schools teaching SEL skills. Although we don't typically partner with individuals, I can point you to some of our latest and most useful resources around social and emotional learning:

:: This is a great place to get started: http://www.edutopia.org/social-emotional-learning
:: We also recently released research pages around SEL: http://www.edutopia.org/sel-research-learning-outcomes
:: And here's a great package on the power of SEL: http://www.edutopia.org/stw-jefferson.

Hope this helps and feel free to reach out with additional questions,
Elana
