If you haven't heard about Michelle Garcia Winner and her wonderful series of curriculum about social thinking...get on it, school counselors! She creates such positive, useful activities. One of my favorites is her Superflex curriculum (written with Stephanie Madrigal), especially for teaching strategies to defeat student-identified problem behaviors. Two of my favorite elements are the "Unthinkables," characters that help externalize students' identified behaviors, and the superhero representing proactive, strategic thinking that defeats these Unthinkables. If you click the link to Amazon from the picture to the right, you can see a full description of the curriculum, as well as a long list of detailed reviews.
So give it a try with your students! And if you do, will you let us know how it goes?
