This unique Library gives teachers and specialists a stimulating, systematic way to develop positive social behaviors in students of all abilities, grades 4-12. Included are over 125 tested lessons and reproducible worksheets in two separately printed, self-contained volumes, each tailored to the developmental needs of students at a particular grade level, 4-6 or 7-12. For easy use, the lessons in each volume follow a uniform format, including titles, behavioral objective, and simple 8-step lesson plan. The lesson activities and worksheets are based on real-life situations and help build students' self-esteem, self-control, and respect for the rights of others.
