The Social Times Curriculum - Kari Dunn Buron

(Doug - I received a pre-review copy of some of the materials and they look quite good. ) 

Set includes: 3 Student Books
1 Teacher Book
1 Curriculum Guide
USB drive with downloadable materials

Using a magazine format in full color and standard columns within each chapter, The Social Times Curriculum is written directly to students in an engaging “voice,” aimed at teaching social cognition and emotional regulation in an enjoyable way that increases students’ motivation and encourages peer interaction. The Social Times Curriculum set consists of three copies of The Social Times Student Book, one copy of The Social Times Teacher Book, The Social Times Curriculum Guide, and a USB drive with downloadable materials. The Social Times Student Book is also available separately to supplement larger classes.

In each chapter, the main topic focuses on an area of social cognition that individuals across the autism spectrum, or with related social needs, might find confusing. All of the topics offer critical information for how to use social learning with peers and in the community, while making each lesson entertaining and applicable to today’s students. The accompanying USB materials include word searches, crossword puzzles, quizzes, hand-outs, scales, and additional activities.
