The Hidden Curriculum for Understanding Unstated Rules in Social Situations for Adolescents and Young Adults

Social learning is made simple in the revised and expanded edition of this popular book. The authors have narrowed their target to issues common amongst adolescents and young adults. While many of the features of the original book have been maintained, information on evidence-based practices about social learning has been added. Additionally, a series of instructional strategies are provided and they can be used to teach the hidden curriculum. Instructional aids include charts, forms, and templates designed to make the job of teaching and learning the hidden curriculum more effective. Foreword by Michelle Garcia Winner.

Customer Review: Amazon Customer - There is a current trend of focusing on active interaction social skills. This book is not so much focused on interactive social situations as it is on public environment expectations and rules. It's more closely related to etiquette principles, but also goes beyond that. Spectrum children are concrete learners so having a book of direct, succinct rules to create structure and frame expectations is a great resource. The book has concentrated organization so you don't have to search through hundreds of pages to find relevant material. Many of the rules listed are so obvious seeming that I think many of us overlook teaching them to our children. It's perfect for busy parents who have their hands full. Thank you Brend Smith Myles for writing this time and sanity saving book!
