  10. What are social skills? “the ability to interact with others… in ways that are socially accepted or valued and at the same time are personally beneficial or beneficial primarily to others.” (Combs and Slaby, 1977) Using social skills is more than knowing a set of behaviors. It is a complex process that involves using these skills in appropriate ways across a variety of contexts. “…it is a rapid chain of decisions based on reading cues and determining responses in the context of interpersonal interactions.” (Connolly, Dowd, Criste, Nelson & Tobias)

  15. NOT SOLD IN STORES ! Here’s how it works….. Social Skills Teaching S.S.T.

  16. HLP9 - Teach Social Behaviors • Teachers should explicitly teach appropriate interpersonal skills, including communication and self management, aligning lessons with classroom and schoolwide expectations for student behavior. Prior to teaching, teachers should determine the nature of the social skill challenge. If students do not know how to perform a targeted social skill, direct social skill instruction should be provided until mastery is achieved. If students display performance problems, the appropriate skill should initially be taught, then emphasis should shift to prompting the student to use the skill and ensuring the ”appropriate” behavior accesses the same or a similar outcome (i.e., is reinforcing to the student) as the problem behavior.

  17. Don’t think of it as an “add-on” to your academic curriculum. Learn ways to infuse social skills instruction into existing instructional activities. 1st step: change your own thinking

  18. Take a Moment to Think… • What do you want? Not want? • How do you let them know you want it? • What do you do when you get it? • What do you do when you don’t?

  19. Rules vs. Expectations • “Because of the importance placed on the first day, many teachers begin the year with a big list of rules. • For some students, this can be intimidating, especially if they have experienced challenges in the classroom in the past. In fact, most students are well aware that there are consequences for poor behavior. • However, you can turn the first day on its head by doing something a little different – instead of rules and consequences, begin the new school year by setting expectations.” • https://www.pbisrewards.com/blog/rules-vs-expectations-first-day-school/

  20. Expectations should be stated positively Functional Skills Resource/Co Teach/Gen Ed Teacher and student developed. Discuss what expectations should be in place to make the classroom a safe environment for learning. What does that look like/sound like? • Teacher developed – • visuals That depends on grade level and the students you are teaching

  21. Examples Functional Skills Resource/Co-Teach/Gen Ed Instead of presenting the rule, “Don’t talk while the teacher is talking,” set the expectation of “Being respectful toward one another by being quiet when the teacher or another student has the floor during a lesson” • “Feet on floor” • “Hands in lap”

  22. CAUTION! • Be Consistent • Don’t let the little things go

  23. 2nd step: Determine what needs to be taught

  24. 3rd step: Teach it!!

  25. Teaching Social Skills • 1. Model it • create opportunities to model • 2. Plan for success • Prepare students ahead of time (winning/losing, recess) • 3. Explicit practice if needed • Greeting others • 4. Reinforce it • When you see it, acknowledge it • Search for the good • 5. Intervene when needed • Intervene quickly and model appropriate behavior

  30. Habits How long does it take for a behavior to become a habit? Simple repetitive tasks require a timeframe of approximately 21 days to condition (Cooper Research, Inc.) Lilly et al (2009) recruited 96 people interested in starting a new habit. Results showed that a plateau was reached in 66 days for the new habit to be done with automaticity. So what does this mean?
