Teachers can help prevent problem behaviors and actually increase time available for academics by teaching social skills to students. This book provides teachers with:

  • Lesson plans with activities that can be adapted for students in grades K-12. The plans include suggestions for discussion, activities, journaling, role play, and reading.    
  • Reproducible skill pages that you can hand out or post in the classroom as reminders to students and coupons you can use to reward good behavior.    
  • Techniques for "blending" the teaching of social skills into academic lessons in reading, writing, math, and social studies.    
  • Ideas for using bulletin board displays and individual student graphs to motivate and monitor behavior.    
  • Strategies for increasing parent support.

Targets 28 social skills including following instructions, staying on task, working with others, accepting criticism, listening, ignoring distractions, making a good choice, sharing, and showing respect. The authors have a combined 40 years of teaching experience in K-12 classrooms and now train other teachers, administrators, and other school staff across the United States in the Girls and Boys Town Education Model.
