Students can learn so much from each other! That’s why this week’s FREE tool is a table, “Cooperative Learning Strategies,” which lists a variety of cooperative learning activities through which students can develop their social skills. Activities such as “turn-to-your-neighbor” and “think-pair-share” allow students to directly interact with one another so they can practice social skills, teamwork, and group- and self-evaluation. The table comes from the CEC book, Social Skills for Students With Autism Spectrum Disorder Vol. I. The books is the first in a two volume set that includes 100 detailed lesson plans for elementary and secondary social skill instruction.
