Teaching Strategies: How to Teach Social Skills

It’s not just about reading, writing and arithmetic these days. Now, educators are expected to instruct students on topics like how to interact with their peers, how to listen, and how to resolve conflicts, among other things.

Indeed, it can be a challenge to teach kids concepts such as encouraging others, following directions, and listening actively.

In today’s TeachHUB.com centerpiece article, author Janelle Cox outlines some teaching strategies that educators can use to alter their curriculum to address these fundamental skills.

Three key foundational elements Janelle lays out include teaching the social skill, practicing it, and reviewing it. She also gives distinct classroom examples on how to carry out each of those elements.

By following the teaching strategies mentioned, 21st-century educators will be better equipped to instruct their classes on the social skills they’ll need to succeed not just in the classroom, but in the workplace following graduation.
