Teaching the Social Skills of Academic Interaction, Grades 4-12
Step-by-Step Lessons for Respect, Responsibility, and Results


Teaching the Social Skills of Academic Interaction taps the instructional power of slides, full-color illustrations, and super succinct directions to teach both the language and the behaviors of working effectively with others. These 35 lessons take your kids on a carefully paced upward spiral of collaboration, with explicit coaching on how to speak, listen, argue, persuade-and get along. Here's the best part: You model and your students practice these social skills with the content of your curriculum, not in disconnected add-on exercises.

For each lesson, there are six to 25 slides that focus on one vital academic-social skill; step-by-step teaching tips are in the lie-flat planning book. The sequence looks mostly like this:

*The first slides introduce the skill-like being a good partner or arguing both sides of a controversial topic-then explain its value.
*The next slides help model the skill in action, using whatever curricular topic you happen to be teaching.
*Now, kids' active thinking is invited as you co-create strategies to enhance use of the target social-academic skill.
*Additional slides help kids practice the skill using your curricular content as you monitor and support.
* Lessons end with a debriefing to solidify new understandings.

Any way you look at Teaching the Social Skills of Academic Interaction, it's a win-win. Your students realize better engagement in curriculum topics, higher performance, and social skills to last a lifetime. That's really college and career ready! And our schools become safer harbors, where students know one another, respect one another, and learn together.
