I Can by Pamela Sackett book cover

I Can: Twelve Ways to Witness the Heart

$9.95 Paperback, 4 x 6 inches, 76 pages; first edition, July 2019. 

The I Can book is
Core concepts of emotion literacy, not a how-to manual;
Key narrative toward self-authority, not a "you should" thing;
Especially for those who influence the lives of children, not behavior-centric;
For navigating the delicate, nuanced and sometimes rough waters of feelings & needs.

The Story
After two decades of creating and producing songs and theatrical material to teach emotion literacy, Pamela worked with ELA board members to develop an arts-based online curriculum for deeper engagement with ELA concepts and content, some of which is featured on this site. The I Can book captures and characterizes the organizing principles of emotion literacy and serves as the foundation for the curriculum.
