By Dr. Ellen McGinnis
Skillstreaming in Early Childhood employs a four-part training approach – modeling, role-playing, performance feedback, and generalization – to teach essential prosocial skills to preschool and kindergarten-age children.
This book provides a complete description of the Skillstreaming program, with instructions for teaching 40 prosocial skills. It is divided into two main parts:
- Part 1: Skillstreaming Program Content and Implementation
Chapters on effective Skillstreaming arrangements, Skillstreaming teaching procedures, refining skill use, teaching for skill generalization, managing behavior problems, Skillstreaming in the school context, and more.
- Part 2: Skill Outlines and Homework Reports
Skill outlines are handy one-page summaries for each skill, including skill steps, guidelines for skill instruction, and suggested situations for modeling displays. Homework reports list skill steps and guide students in practicing the skills and evaluating skill use outside the Skillstreaming group.
Skillstreaming is the definitive social skills teaching method developed by Dr. Arnold P. Goldstein and colleagues, completely revised and expanded in this edition.
