Welcome to the Changing Perspectives Resource Library. This resource library is designed to provide educators with summaries and links to other publications and organizations for further reading about a range of topics related to social-emotional learning, differences, diversity, and education. Our hope is to curate resources that you can use for your own learning, share with colleagues and/or parents to support greater awareness, education and practical tools for improving student well-being.

Use the menu on the left to search resources by topic or audience (you may select more than one menu item at a time; search results will include resources that meet all your selected menu items). When selected, a menu item will be highlighted in blue. Click on a blue menu item to de-select it and remove it from your search criteria.

Resources on this page are updated monthly. If you know of a resource we should include, send it to us!
