Often when I work with students who have a deficit with social skills, I find that it is important to teach them about appropriate conversation topics and the people whom it is appropriate to talk about certain subjects with. In addition, it is important to discuss conversation topics that are inappropriate to talk about with certain groups of people, especially strangers even if they are a “safe stranger”. This 43 page packet aims to help teach students about different groups of people we talk to on a regular basis, appropriate conversation topics, and inappropriate conversation topics with certain groups of people.
Included in the packet:
– A visual chart with four different conversational groups
– Conversation topic strips/quotation strips to place onto the visual in regards to the appropriate group to discuss the topic/use the quote with
– A social skills story to teach students more about conversation partners and appropriate conversation topics
– A visual of “People I Talk To” for students to write people they are comfortable speaking with in four different conversational groups
