This bestselling resource offers an exciting collection of 200 ready-to-use worksheets to help adolescents build the social skills they need to interact effectively with others and learn how to apply these skills to various real-life settings, situations, and problems.
An essential aid to help middle and high school students gain the social skills necessary for success in school and in life. Designed as a self-contained program, the book outlines a flexible, ready-to-use approach, complete with reproducible activities, to help exceptional students learn and put into practice appropriate ways to behave among others. The activities not only teach kids how to get along with others, but also help them learn to control a situation by actively participating and contributing to the social outcome.
The book is organized around three core areas crucial to social development in the primary grades: Accepting Rules and Authority at School, Relating to Peers, and Developing Positive Social Skills. 20 complete teaching units focusing on 20 basic social skills, such as being a good listener, "reading" other people, and using common sense.
Each lesson places a specific skill within the context of real-life situations, giving teachers a means to guide students to think about why the social skill is important. The hands-on activity that accompanies each lesson helps students to work through, think about, discuss, and practice the skill in or outside of the classroom.
