In small group instruction I conduct planned small groups outside of the classroom to respond to the students identified needs or interests and largely focus on the personal, social, educational, and career development skills. Some of my small group lessons include topics like the following:
Small group sessions to help students learn how to identify and appropriately express their anger.
Providing students with the tools they need to overcome their anxious feelings.
Helping students cope with their parents' divorce.
Small group sessions to help students with their grief.
Making and Keeping Friends
Reflecting on the characteristics of good friends.
Small group sessions to boost students' confidence.
Lessons to build an understanding of positive school behaviors.
