Features 25 Different Stories
Reading Level 1 - 2Interest Level 3 - 12
These readers feature adolescent and young adult characters successfully handling various social skills situations.
The Getting Along With People series was developed to give educators a “hands-on” tool to help them teach acceptable social skills at school, work, and home. Even negative behaviors-some of which may be displayed by the participants-can be discussed in a non-threatening and enjoyable environment.
The black and white illustrations serve as a visual teaching tool for people who can read and those with limited reading skills. The illustrations are so detailed that many participants will be able to describe the scenes even if they have no reading skills.
Each short story in the Reader is two pages and has large print for ease of reading. On the first page of each story, participants are presented with a “social situation” and asked to read and discuss the scene. On the second page, a positive solution to the situation is presented as an acceptable way to handle the issue. After reading each story, participants are given a Workbook sheet that shows both common positive and negative responses to the situations portrayed.

This Reader and Workbook visually relate 25 social situations that individuals might encounter in a workplace setting, such as following workplace rules, acting appropriately during work ride, appropriate social greetings, visiting with co-workers, working with substitute supervisor, continuing to work when supervisor leaves work area, and more.

The main characters and their co-workers act out social scenes while they are performing actual job duties. The book helps middle and high school students who are in job training programs or who have jobs in the community to learn to handle work social situations in an acceptable manner.
