TeachTown Social Skills is a comprehensive, character-based, video-modeling curriculum.
Students often need extra support when it comes to mastering social skills. This comprehensive, character-based video-modeling curriculum has students following the adventures of four fun, relatable animated characters as they learn to cooperate, listen, respect personal space, express emotions appropriately, and more. Each target social skill is introduced and illustrated in a 2 to 3 minute animated episode and is part of a series of six days of lessons that include methods for differentiating instruction, generalization activities, and homework assignments. TeachTown Social Skills – created by experts – is designed for students who have a minimum language level of 4 years.
Each social skill domain of TeachTown Social Skills organizes 10 targeted behaviors (e.g., “Ask Before Interrupting Play”) that are each based on an important social skill under a key theme (e.g., “Following the Rules”). Each targeted behavior features its own animated episode and six daily teacher-driven lesson plans that contain the following:
• Goal & Objective – Socially valid theme goals. Each theme focuses on one goal, and each lesson concentrates on a specific objective aimed at meeting this goal.
• Related Skills – While each lesson focuses on a specific goal and objective, they also address other important skills.
• Materials – Materials necessary to complete the lesson.
• Preparation – Each lesson is written to take no more than 20 minutes of instructional time including preparation.
