Activities to build resilient and supportive peer groups
The book is divided up into 26 sessions which are arranged in alphabetical order from ‘attitude’to ‘zest for life’. In each session there is a poster and a ‘take away’ activity, as well as full facilitator’s notes for whole class introduction, pair and share tasks and a plenary. A unique feature of the programme is that it addresses the development of non-verbal communication: the ability to read social cues.
The teaching sessions cover topics such as:
- Giving and sharing
- Specific thinking skills.
The sessions raise awareness and understanding of the interpersonal skills necessary for friendship, including communication and co-operation.
