Looking for a Valentine's Day (or any day) activity that focuses on SEL rather than romantic love? This is the activity for you! This is an interactive activity for high school students that includes links to three Teen Vogue™ articles about self-acceptance and self-love with prompts for discussion or reflection that work well for student choice or as stations. Extend the lesson by having students write what they love about themselves and then have them write a love letter to themselves too!

Alternate options to differentiate for your students are included (and explained, including word counts for articles).
