The social world is a big, complicated place that requires us to constantly figure out hidden rules in situations to help us make sense of how we are all interpreting and responding to each other’s actions and reactions. Expanded and revised, this 2nd edition provides an all-new structured approach to observation, illustrations that reflect a broader range of inclusion and diversity in characters, and lessons for deeper learning which include activities and practice pages for readers as they learn to observe a situation, the people, and what’s happening—a skill set that can then be used everywhere they go, whether it’s at home, school, or within the community. Interventionists will find specific teaching tips and an expanded glossary of Social Thinking Vocabulary and concepts to guide young readers in exploring tools to help them make smart guesses to ultimately figure out the social emotional chain reaction.Learn more
