"The Social Times Curriculum provides special education teachers, speech-language pathologists, therapists, and social workers a complete package for the planning and implementation of social/emotional interventions aligned with Evidence-Based Practice guidelines. The versatility of this curriculum offers differentiation for intervention for individual students, small groups, and can be conducive for social/emotional learning at a school-wide level. Teachers can effortlessly plan a year’s worth of social/emotional topics with this single resource. Each chapter topic can serve the “anchor” for the weekly learning targets and the “Try It” suggestions as well as the “Teaching Tip” guidelines are designed to engage students in a variety of learning modalities. The Social Times provides an opportunity to directly teach social/emotional skills through a literacy lens. The magazine format offers a platform for students to use reading, speaking/listening and written language skills to also improve peer interaction, social engagement, self-regulation and executive function skills."

"The original Social Times magazine was my favorite resource for teachers and parents to share with their middle and high school teenagers. Kari Dunn Buron has now compiled the best 25 issues into a single curriculum that addresses these critical concepts for students who struggle with social and emotional understanding. The Social Times Curriculum, which is fun and easy to use, contains short stories, cartoons, crossword puzzles and tips that helps students learn about relationships, emotions and themselves. All materials are included! No specialized training required! It is wonderful.”
