6th grade social studies will continue on the Arabian Peninsula by pptfiles


									The beginning of February social skills class will focus on Public vs. Private. Although
the lesson looks simple as it is outlined here many of the topics covered during this
section are critical for appropriate social interactions throughout life. As many
missteps in this area can and are viewed as rude/eccentric or even through
stereotypical prejudice. We typically try to cover this topic multiple times at the end
of the year and as the students advance in both physical and social maturity. Please
be advised that I always start with a SAFE person disclaimer and encourage each
child to seek explore difficult/unsure topics with their families. I try to stay clear of
giving advice or ethical education but no matter how well this is done an issue
usually will come up. If this does I will call home and discuss what confused the
students. Social skills is also the primary time to collect and teach IEP goals as well
as assist students with any difficulties they may have in their general
education/resource classes and provide related services with as little intrusion on the
school day as possible.
