Do you wish your secondary students would use appropriate social skills in day to day interactions? Do you have students who need to strengthen their executive function? Do you need your students to be the difference for bullying prevention? Here are 25 timely lesson plans that deal directly with bullying, social skills development and executive function. Each lesson is designed to proactively teach students to recognize, prevent and respond appropriately to bullying and teasing behaviors. By applying Boys Town Social Skills such as tolerating differences in others, making and accepting apologies, accepting defeat or loss, and resisting peer pressure, students are empowered to stand up for themselves and their friends to take a stand against bullying.
To help teachers make the most of the lessons, the social skills and activities are tied to a specific executive function such as planning, using self-control, team-building, or demonstrating flexibility.
