TeachTown Social Skills
Students often need extra support when it comes to mastering social skills. That’s why we created TeachTown Social Skills. This comprehensive curriculum and assessment teaches socially-valid skills through animated video-modeling episodes, teacher-delivered lesson plans, and student activities. In TeachTown Social Skills Elementary, students follow the adventures of four fun, relatable animated characters as they learn to cooperate, listen, respect personal space, express emotions appropriately and more. Each target social skill is introduced and illustrated in a 2- to 3-minute animated episode and is part of a series of six days of lessons that include methods for differentiating instruction, generalization activities and homework assignments. TeachTown Social Skills Elementary is designed for students who have a minimum language level of 4 years.

Each target social behavior includes a student activity or assignment that connects standards-based learning to social and emotional context.
