    • 4. This topic: Why Now?Autism:According to a March 2012 report from theNational Institute of Mental Health (2012),autism now affects 1 in 88 children (1 in 54boys). These numbers are up 78% from 2002and 23% from 2006. Bullying & School Violence

What are social skills?Social Skills Training (SST):A form of behavior therapy used by teachers,therapists, and trainers to help persons whohave difficulties relating to other people.It is frequently conducted with students whohave emotional-behavioral disabilities orAutism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).Source: http://www.minddisorders.com/Py-Z/Social-skills-training.html

    • 7. The Skillstreaming CurriculumCreated by expertsin the field but notgrounded in solidinstructional designprinciples, or rootedin any particularISD theory or model
    • 8. How is the content currentlytaught? Typically in a small group (3-5 students); In some cases, special education teachers and/orguidance counselors may deliver the instruction to anentire class (15-30 students); Role-playing and homework are essential componentsof the instruction; In addition to these general content features,skillstreaming sessions are taught using 9 specific,
    • 9. Skillstreaming: The 9 Steps(Formulaic) Step 1: Define the Skill Step 2: Model the Skill Step 3: Establish Trainee (Student) Skill Need Step 4: Select Role-Player Step 5: Set Up the Role-Play Step 6: Conduct the Role-Play Step 7: Provide Performance Feedback Step 8: Assign Skill Homework Step 9: Select Next Role-Player
    • 10. Theory #1: MultipleIntelligences Assumptions:The Criticality of “what to teach” and theconsiderable variability of “how to teachit”;Being able to deploy understanding(performance of understanding);Preparing students for valued adult roles.
    • 11. Theory #1: MultipleIntelligences Assumptions, continued:Helping students to enhance their variousintelligences;Tailoring instruction to individualdifferences in students’ intelligences;An approach to instruction that is notformulaic.
    • 12. Redesign Activities Instead of larger group role-playing,students may create computersimulations to act out the scenariosvisually (Spatial). Students could thengo through each others’ scenariosand provide feedback or brainstormalternative responses.
    • 13. Redesign Activities For those who learn best throughartistic avenues (Aesthetic), studentsmay create and discuss social skillsscenarios by drawing comic strips or,when given a pre-drawn comic strip,fill in the appropriate dialogue.
    • 14. Redesign Activities Students may also reflect on theirown personal as well as peers’ socialskills experiences by creatingcollages, poems, or songs (Musical).Additionally, students could createmnemonic devices or rhymes insteadof using the skills cards.
    • 15. Redesign Activities Students could also watch clips frompopular television shows or musicvideos that demonstrate bothappropriate and undesirable socialskills and then discuss the pros/consand even possible create their ownresponse videos. This activity woulddraw on several learning stylesincluding: Spatial, Musical, and/or
    • 16. Reflections on the redesign Each of these alternate instructionaldesigns allow the lessons to be tailoredto learning preferences of individualstudents. These redesigns implicitly acknowledgethat traditional role-playing, whenoverused, can become a cookie-cuttermethod that may not work equally well
    • 17. Reflections on the redesign The alternate activities also serve thedual purpose of promoting greaterbuy-in, participation, and, ultimately,understanding by accessing multipleentry points.
    • 18. Strengths/Weaknesses The redesigned curriculum may besomewhat less user friendly for thetrainer. The original, formulaicapproach allowed a practiced trainerto lead sessions efficiently andwithout extensive preparation.
    • 19. Theory #2: Open LearningEnvironments AssumptionsPersonal Inquiry;Divergent thinking and multipleperspectives;Self-directed learning and learnerautonomy with metacognitive support.
    • 20. Theory #2: Open LearningEnvironments Assumptions, continuedMediating learning through individualexperience and personal theories;Hands-on, concrete experiences involvingrealistic, relevant problems;Providing tools and resources (technologyscaffolding) to aide the learners’ effort atlearning.
    • 21. Redesign Activities The trainer will assign small groups ofstudents to a computer program thatwould allow them to work together tocreate a mobile app. They could then putthe app on their phones and carry them asa prompt as they attempt to practice theirnew social skills in the real world. Thelearning would come from the discussionand subsequent problem-solving thestudents would participate in when
    • 22. Redesign Activities The trainer could also assign students towork in small groups with the goal ofdrafting and ultimately creating a blogarticle or group wiki page. Student wouldbe free to engage in personal inquiry andgroup discussions related to the skill beingtaught. The trainer could work with othertrainers across the district and/or state toshare peers’ Web 2.0 creations and allowthe students to provide feedback for one
    • 23. Reflections on the redesign The redesign would also introducevarious technology. The alternate activities serve the dualpurpose of promoting increased buy-in, personal ownership, participation,and greater understanding and use ofnewly-learned social skills.
    • 24. Reflections on the redesign The redesign increases opportunities forself-direction, sharing of personalexperiences, engagement in personalinquiry, and formulating personal theories. These sample redesigns encouragedivergent thinking and the sharing ofmultiple perspectives.
    • 25. OLEs: Strengths/Weaknesses Consider the student population and issuessuch as motivation. Are students required toreceive this instruction as part of aconsequence? If so, how might thatinfluence the goal of true, self-directedlearning? Students with social skills deficits related toASD or mild mental retardation may requireadditional metacognitive support.
    • 26. Lessons Learned These sample redesigns are part of a largerseries of eight including several others prominenttheories from Reigeluth’s “Green Books”including: Collaborative Problem-Solving andAttitudinal Theory. This assignment allowed me to begin thinking likean instructional designer. I came to better understand that no theoreticalmodel has all of the answers or lends itself to alltypes of instruction.
