Flugman, Bert; And Others
This curriculum guide is designed to aid teachers and counselors in helping special education students improve some of the interpersonal skills that are important in all aspects of living, but especially on the job. The guidebook focuses on 10 interpersonal skills, one in each chapter, progressing from the simpler to the more complex: nonverbal behavior, listening, expressing ideas, expressing feelings, handling questions, conducting conversations, receiving and giving feedback, participating in groups, resolving conflicts, and being assertive. Each chapter follows this sequence: skill area, goals and objectives, sample lesson plans, an interview with a former student, discussion and exercise guide based on the interview, activities for practicing the skill, and homework for students. The guide includes introductory material explaining how to use it and 34 references. (KC)
