Today, teachers instruct students on interacting with peers, listening, and resolving conflicts, among other things.

Indeed, it can be a challenge to teach kids concepts such as encouraging others, following directions, and listening actively.

In a recent article, author Janelle Cox outlined some teaching strategies that educators can use to alter their curriculum to address these fundamental skills.

Three key foundational elements Janelle laid out include teaching the social skill, practicing it, and reviewing it. She also gave distinct classroom examples on how to carry out each of those elements.

By following the teaching strategies mentioned, 21st-century educators will be better equipped to instruct their classes on the social skills they’ll need to succeed not just in the classroom, but in the workplace following graduation.
