Klappentext

Social Skills Activities for Secondary Students with Special Needs

SECOND EDITION

This thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded edition offers a practical resource for teachers who work with special students in grades 6-12. It is 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 offered here 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.

Veteran special educator Darlene Mannix provides 20 complete teaching units focusing on essential social skills such as being a good listener, "reading" other people, and using common sense. These are followed by 75 reproducible worksheets that help students practice applying the social skills to real-life situations in five different settings: home, school, work, among peers, and in the community. The worksheets cover routine as well as unusual situations and can be used in any order after students have completed the basic social skills training outlined in the book.
