The Project CLASS core competency is Training.
Many children and adults have relationship problems because they never learned the foundational social skills when they were young in order NOT to have problems. Without a solid initial foundation of interpersonal skills, relationship connections and benefits are lacking. Accordingly, relationship difficulties follow.
Project CLASS Training builds the essential platform for compassionate and effective relationships. Children develop functional social skills. Caring adults experience strengthened social skills teaching abilities.
Project CLASS Workshop Training is a one-day, hands-on, experiential workshop focused on acquiring specific skills for social skills development in children 3-5 years old and 6-10 years old. Project CLASS Training is structured around two areas of practical content: specific social skills for children & specific social skills teaching abilities for adult care-providers. Both sets of skills are clear, organized and designed for immediate implementation. The skills focused on are “best practices.”
Project CLASS Training teaches both sets of skills, children’s and adults’. Integrated into the Training are teaching-learning tools and resources (music, songs, movements, stories) designed to capture the attention of the children and make learning social skills FUN! In addition, the teaching-learning tools amplify adult teaching effectiveness.
The Project CLASS Training experience and process, designed for skills development, involves skills demonstration and skills practice. Project CLASS Training typically occurs in groups of 30 to 75 attendees, with a 5:1 ratio of attendees for each trainer. By staffing Project CLASS Training with a high number of trainers and a comparatively small number of attendees, there is the opportunity for individual and small group attention that are ideal for skill acquisition in a compressed amount of time.
Importantly, Project CLASS Training is designed to be easily put into practice and is likely to result in immediately positive results with children. Trainees receive a set of Project CLASS posters and a CD. These support materials are invaluable teaching-learning tools, and are designed for practical and motivational benefits. Parents and teachers routinely report that children ask to listen to the social skills songs and want to do the social skills movements as preferred activities.
