Is it possible to establish standards for social skills like it is for math or reading? Authors Judi Kinney, a long time special education teacher, and Tom Kinney, a writer and editor, answer with a resounding "yes"! Fifty-three social skills are organized to mesh with a typical school day: Getting ready, classroom behavior, transitions, breaks. Additional skills focus on peer relationships and common etiquette. Each skill provides teacher guidelines and a student self-monitoring page. The guidelines include an objective with five benchmarks, problem solving checklist and a script for teachers to follow when reviewing the skill with students. Self-monitoring pages help students keep track of their social progress. The skills are broken down into five steps that correspond to the objective-based benchmarks. Ideal for student portfolios. A concise record keeping system helps integrate the teaching of social skills into IEPs.Judi Kinney is the author of 'Social Standards at School' with ISBN 9781578611553 and ISBN 1578611555.
