Teaching Social Competence Package
Teaching Social Competence provides social skill assessment and intervention strategies for staff working with children grades 2-8. Poor social skills not only make for unhappy and often lonely students, they have a measurable impact on academic achievement. On the other hand, achievement improves when social skills improve.
Authors Dennis Knapczak and Paul Rodes recognize that school is a social environment with its own definition of appropriate behavior. They urge social behavior assessments based on behavior of socially competent peers. When preparing interventions, they suggest setting attainable goals and working on one skill at a time. The book includes numerous reproducibles to help you observe, assess and plan successful interventions.
The DVD profiles three kids who struggle in class because of social deficits, making suggestions for improving their grades and their lives. Useful and efficient for IEP planning.
