"I found this book to have great potential for use in schools. Accessible and well organized, it provides essential content to enhance educators' classroom practices as they promote students' social skills. Strong ideas are presented for conceptualizing and addressing social competence with the majority of students, small groups, and the few students who need individualized attention. This book will serve as an ideal required text for my yearly graduate course in social skills instruction." - Douglas Cheney, PhD, University of Washington, USA "This timely book addresses the often-overlooked importance of social competence in the inclusive classroom, and includes a comprehensive review of relevant research. A highlight of the work is an excellent chapter about capitalizing on the power of peers. The authors show how creating a socially rich classroom environment can improve achievement for all students. The book artfully moves from the classroom level to the level of the individual student, and carefully ties in strategies for individual skills assessment and progress monitoring." - Julie Causton, PhD, Syracuse University, New York, USA "An excellent resource. Based on a strong theoretical foundation that explains how and why social competence matters in the classroom, this book provides practical, evidence-based guidelines for helping students with and without disabilities to develop social skills and competencies. The authors present a broad range of assessment techniques, along with strategies for schoolwide, classroom-level, and individualized prevention, intervention, and instruction. This is an invaluable book for elementary educators who work in inclusive classrooms, as well as preservice teachers and practitioners who wish to do so." - Kathryn Wentzel, PhD, Department of Human Development, University of Maryland, College Park
