Last week, the Lunch Buddies had a great lesson concerning “a Flexible Reputation”. I got the idea from the book, Unstuck & On Target! The book is an executive function curriculum and chock full of great ideas and lesson plans. I got my copy from http://www.socialthinking.com
First, we discussed the meaning of a reputation. Then, I pointed out that when we are repeatedly flexible, people start to think of us as flexible and we are more likely to get privileges based on our flexibility. Flexible Reputation Scenarios are part of the lesson. Thanks to confidential informants, some of our scenarios are real, straight from the students everyday school experiences.
I made this visual as a take away, power card, reminder.
There are many possibilities for extending and elaborating on this lesson.
