Understanding Unstated Rules in Social Situations for Children and Adolescents
COMING JULY 2017! PRE-ORDER BY JUNE 30th!
The Hidden Curriculum Calendar is back after hundreds of requests — a testimony to the widespread need for a tool to help teach the “hidden curriculum” in an easy and convenient way. It is as simple as literally turning over a calendar page for a daily lesson in those unstated rules or customs that, if not understood, can make the world a confusing place and make us feel isolated
Some people seem to learn the hidden curriculum or aspects of it almost automatically. Others learn it only by direct instruction, which is where this calendar comes in. It contains a variety of hidden curriculum items that are difficult for many to understand unless directly taught. For instance, "'Doing your best’ means doing the best that you can do. It does not mean that you have to be the best.” –October 21
This academic calendar begins August 2017 and ends July 2018 for 365 days of social learning.
Suitable for grades K-12.
