Sharing an Imagination
We tend to think imaginations are only for the young! Yet sharing an imagination is essential across the ages for having a conversation, working in a team, creating new things, reading comprehension, peer play, social networking, and more. Join Social Thinking’s founder, Michelle Garcia Winner, as she explains what we mean by sharing an imagination, how all nine Social Thinking concepts taught in this webinar series lead to it, and how this concept is critical (and, we think, uniquely suited) to helping individuals of all ages develop social competencies. Plus, discover which Social Thinking materials will help you teach this concept across different age groups!
After watching this webinar, infuse your teaching with this concept over the next month to help your students understand it deeply and meaningfully (avoid memorization). Then, review all 10 concepts in our webinar series to understand how each concept builds on the next and why teaching them slowly, in order, is a best practice for supporting an individual through their social learning journey.
The 10 Concepts Webinar Series
This webinar is part of a series that shares best practices for teaching 10 core concepts from the Social Thinking Methodology. Strengthen your students’ social-emotional learning by infusing your teaching with these concepts over the course of the school year. Each concept should be taught slowly for one month or longer—it takes time for students to deeply understand the ideas and begin using them in their lives. We recommend learning about (and teaching) the concepts in order as they build on one another. View all the webinars in the 10 Concepts series within our larger webinar library.
