Teaching Social Competence provides social skill assessment and intervention strategies for staff working with children grades 2-8. Inadequate social skills not only make for unhappy and often lonely students that can have a measurable impact on academic achievement.
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.
