This article provides strategies for educators to ensure social-emotional learning (SEL) practices are enacted in ways that are culturally responsive and equitable for youth. In particular, it introduces the concept of critical consciousness, which refers to youths’ ability to recognize and resist oppressive forces shaping their lives and communities. Any educator of any grade-level can use the suggested strategies to help students simultaneously build critical consciousness and more traditional SEL skills, such as empathy and problem-solving.
