Social Competence and Character: Developing IEP Goals, Objectives, and Interventions.
Fletcher-Janzen, Elaine; De Pry, Randall L.
This guide is intended to help educators develop and meet Individual Education Program (IEP) social competence goals for elementary and middle school students. These goals and objectives center on the areas of cooperation, organization, responsibility, and empathy. For each area, the guide provides: (1) examples of strategies and methods for conducting behavioral assessments to identify IEP goals; (2) examples of goals and objectives for the specific social skills associated with each competency area; (3) examples of intervention strategies for meeting the goals across three phases of learning: initial learning (acquisition phase); mastery learning (fluency phase); and adapted learning (generalization phase). Among the 24 goals addressed are the following: asking questions; joining group activities; managing materials; managing time; completing assignments; predicting consequences of behavior; refusing unreasonable requests; identifying perspectives of others; giving compliments; and apologizing to others. Suggested data collection and self-determination strategies as well as sample worksheets are appended. (Individual sections contain references.) (DB)
