The Skills That Matter
Teaching Interpersonal and Intrapersonal Competencies in Any Classroom

© 2018 | 224 pages | Corwin

Build skills for lifelong success

Many students leave high school without the skills they need to succeed in postsecondary education and the workforce. How can we better equip students for lifelong success? Research demonstrates that intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies impact student behavior and achievement, increase graduation rates, and promote strong post-school outcomes. The Skills That Matter provides middle and high school educators with the resources, tools, and practical examples to teach key intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies, including self-regulation, goal-setting, self-efficacy, assertiveness, and conflict management. Readers will find

  • Competency-specific evidence-based instructional strategies with examples, and
  • Tools such as sample instructional plans, formative assessments, and student-friendly products.

This book provides teachers with the practical information they need to better develop socially and emotionally engaged, career-equipped, lifelong learners.
