Title: Social Thinking Workshets for Tweens and Teens Learninig to Read in Between the Social Lines
Author: Winner, Michelle Garcia
Published: 2011
Summary:
Social Thinking Worksheets for Tweens and Teens, has a new name: Social Thinking Thinksheets for Tweens and Teens. It's the same great content, now with a new title and cover. Thinksheets for Tweens and Teens focuses on the social issues and challenges faced by pre-adolescents and adolescents and introduces social concepts and strategies that can help individuals navigate these tricky years. Social rules and expectations change with age; thinking and behavior that was appropriate in elementary school can quickly become inappropriate and unexpected as students move into middle and high school. We developed these Thinksheets to help educators, therapists, and parents encourage more mature social thinking and related shifts in their students' social skills. The Thinksheets explore a wide range of topics, starting with the basic Social Thinking understanding of the Four Steps of Communication, to exploring the hidden rules of the classroom and when is it okay to correct others. Chapters include What Is Social Communication?, Problem Solving, Lessons on Emotions, Different Perspectives, Being Bossy and Jerky, Lessons on Friendships, The Social Fake and Other Tricks, and Participating in Groups. There are more than 160 Thinksheets across these 8 sections, and all are included on the Mac/PC friendly CD that comes with the book. Material in this book may be used by older students who are less mature or who learn this type of information more slowly.
