According to research by Labor and Industry, a lack of social skills is the major reason people are fired from jobs. Though most educators agree and understand the significance of this area, the educational field has not provided adequate training or preparation for the majority of its employees. This class will allow you the opportunity to gain valuable strategies in teaching social skills and self-esteem. Many methods presented can be utilized immediately in a school without sacrificing valuable content time. In addition, specific curriculums will be examined and explored for use within a school. This information will prove valuable to all educators.

Our school had Michael Sedler at our beginning of the year "rally"...he was excellent in helping us understand how to speak to our students and "tone". I took his Social Skills course, and although I teach in a very different setting, I was able to apply what he gave me and I found it very engaging.
