An engaging component designed to supplement the curriculum detailed in Skillstreaming the Elementary School Child. This comprehensive resource provides the materials needed to sustain skill instruction, enhance students’ skill mastery, and most important – to refine skill use for dealing with more complex, real-life situations in and outside of the classroom.
The 312-page manual features 600 easy-to-use lesson plans and related activities. Downloadable reproducibles (in some books also a data CD) contain over 200 printable forms necessary for implementing the lesson plans. Students learn important strategies such as goal setting, problem solving, impulse control, cooperating, anticipating consequences, and thinking aloud. Activities are provided for at least one week of supplementary instruction for each of the 60 skills in the elementary curriculum.
The manual includes numerous reproducible forms and worksheets available as a download. Some books may also contain a CD for reproducibles.
Shown below is an episode of Prosocially Yours, a podcast produced by Research Press. In this episode, host Elizabeth Hess interviews educator and author, Dr. Ellen McGinnis, about the widely acclaimed Skillstreaming program.
