A Practical Instructional Approach-Skill Packets

Learn a sound, easy-to-use instructional approach for helping students develop critical social skills. This data-based approach is designed to help students with behavioral difficulties—withdrawn behaviors, immature behaviors, aggressive behaviors—learn appropriate behaviors; it is intended to be implemented in either general classroom or specialized contexts. The approach has been successfully implemented in schools nationwide.

The manual explains the instructional strategies and offers practical advice on applying the approach to children with difficult behaviors. The social skills selected for inclusion in the program–for example, accepting consequences, listening, following directions, coping with conflict, accepting responsibility for one’s behavior, making friends–were identified by over 1,000 teachers as being the most needed.

The overview contains information on the approach. The skill packets provide lessons and student self-monitoring materials for different social skill areas:

  • Basic Classroom Social Skills—saying please and thank you, asking questions, listening, following directions, and waiting one’s turn. [65 pages]
  • Positive Peer Interactions—making friends, cooperating with others, dealing with losing, understanding others’ feelings, and compromising with peers. [70 pages]
  • Coping with Conflict-successfully dealing with conflict, accepting responsibility for behavior, coping with aggression from others, accepting not getting one’s own way, and accepting the answer “no”. [70 pages]
  • Replacement Behaviors–dealing with fear appropriately, dealing with anger appropriately, accepting consequences of behavior, responding to failure, and seeking attention appropriately. [66 pages]

For each social skill, lessons are tailored for students with difficult behaviors, including:

  • Withdrawn behaviors.
  • Immature behaviors.
  • Aggressive behaviors.

Each lesson comes complete with:

  • An environmental assessment.
  • Detailed intervention plan for students who can’t perform the social skill.
  • Detailed intervention plan for students who won’t perform the social skill.
  • Record card for assessment.
