Is Your Body in the Group?
When hanging out with peers, some of our students think they’re part of the group when in fact they’re many steps away. Where your body is relative to the group matters—it influences how others perceive you and your intentions, and ultimately their relationship with you. How do you know if your body is in the group? Join Social Thinking’s founder, Michelle Garcia Winner, as she deconstructs this seemingly simple concept and exposes the many things we consider when getting—and keeping—our bodies in a group.
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 whole body listening!

This webinar is the fourth in a series that shares best practices for teaching 10 core Social Thinking concepts over 10 months.

In the bottom right corner of the webinar player you will see text that reads "HD" - click on this icon and then choose a reduced bitrate of "auto" or "240."
