Learning About Social Behavior. Implementation Guide.
Favero, Jane; And Others
Designed for teaching students in regular and special education classes, the guide provides an instructional approach (as opposed to a counseling approach) to teaching social and behavioral skills. This approach, based on the premise that behavioral skills can be developed through instruction, drills, and applied practice, employs concepts from the behavioral dimension of the Structure of Intellect Model of Intelligence, from assertiveness training, and from the work of Paul Ekman and Wallace Friesen on six basic emotions. The project is built around six instructional units (separate units provided for elementary and secondary levels): (1) basic feelings; (2) understanding interpersonal relationships; (3) problem solving; (4) complex social situations; (5) setting and attaining goals; (6) implications of various actions. Teachers assign project activities, which include group discussion, role playing, modeling, and worksheets. Evaluation instruments, instructions for their use, and a discussion of their development and reliability are included in the document. An assertiveness checklist, behavioral checklist, problem solving checklist, Cognition of Behavioral Units (CBU) Test, and an Evaluation of Behavioral Implications (EBI) are included. Teacher inservice and parent meeting outlines conclude the document. (LH)
