Course Overview: Designed for secondary students to learn how to improve their relationships with others. The lessons and activities teach basic social skills, help students to see themselves as others see them, and how to make behavior adjustments to meet our cultural expectations. This class begins with an exploration of our cultural “norms” and expected behaviors in all real-life situations. Social skills are presented in small sequential steps, activities; discussions, examples, and role-play are all used to aid students in learning these new skills. The topics covered are serious and important, however, humor and fun are always included whenever possible.
