- Coming to Our Senses: Addresses a different sensory experience.
- I Second That Emotion!: The 5-Point Scale, a system used to concretely define social emotions and behaviors, is used in each issue to break down an emotion or social rules to make it more manageable and easier to understand.
- Cartoon: Includes a different cartoon to serve as the basis for discussion: Why is the cartoon funny? What social rule is being broken? What might the listener be thinking?
