Join Us on a Learning Journey: 10 Concepts in 10 Months
Join us on a learning journey through the entire school year! Each month for the next 10 months, our experts are sharing best practices for teaching one of our 10 core Social Thinking concepts—which build on each other and foster the development of social competencies. The concepts are taught from the perspective of Social Thinking’s Social Competency Model to help refine students’ social attention, interpretation, problem solving, and responses within social contexts. We also share the Social Thinking products our clinicians use to extend the teaching of these concepts with different age groups.
Whether you’re new to Social Thinking or have used the methodology for years, this series gives you a framework to dive deep into a foundational social concept each month—which we find greatly benefits even the smartest students. While Social Thinking offers a myriad of treatment frameworks and strategies, these 10 foundational concepts are a great place to anchor and expand your students’ social-emotional learning at school, home, and in the community.
About This Webinar: Is Your Body in the Group?
As students become familiar with Social Thinking’s concepts, they (along with adult interventionists) begin to develop stronger social self-awareness. In this webinar, Michelle Garcia Winner, the founder of Social Thinking, will discuss the importance of how we interpret each other’s physical presence and how to develop stronger social self-awareness of where our body is relative to the group. She will also recommend which Social Thinking products to use to teach the concept body in the group, and will offer tips for how to teach this concept to individuals with social anxiety. Body in the group is to be taught after your students understand and are using the first three concepts discussed in previous webinars in this series.
After watching this webinar, infuse your teaching with the concept over the next month to help your students understand it deeply and meaningfully (avoid memorization). Then, tune in to the next webinar to learn how to build on this concept with best practices for teaching the concept whole body listening!
