Additional Book Details

Includes CD-Rom



Pupils are rarely taught the principles of effective co-operation although being able to work effectively as part of a group is critical in all contexts; school, life and work.



The book is based on the author's practical experience of running the programme in schools and is underpinned by research into the development of pro-social behaviour and friendship skills.



The 26 sessions are arranged in the sequence of the alphabet from Attitude to the Zest for life. In each session there is a poster and a 'take away' activity as well as full facilitators' notes for whole class introduction, pair and share tasks and a plenary. A unique feature of the programme is that it addresses the development of non-verbal communication, the ability to read social cues.



The sessions raise awareness and understanding of the interpersonal skills necessary for friendships, including communication and co-operation.



The teaching sessions cover topics such as:



- Reciprocity


- Commitment


- Giving and sharing


- Trust


- Specific thinking skills.



The programme is intended for whole class work but would also be suitable for small groups.
