Use this 300-page training package to learn how to teach critical classroom social skills to students (K-8) in inclusive classrooms and schools. The package offers practical instructional strategies for educators—teachers, special educators, school psychologists, social workers, guidance counselors, and teacher educators—who are working alone or in collaborative partnerships to develop social skills in all students. A special section provides strategies for teaching social skills to students with behavioral difficulties. The manual includes blackline masters, sample activities from teachers who have successfully piloted the approach, assessment forms, and teacher-developed scope and sequence materials for the most commonly taught social skills. An accompanying mpeg shows how teachers across the country have used the social skills approach with diverse student populations.
