PREDICTIONS

 

Students need to identify the social importance of predictions of their social settings around them in order to know how to respond to the situations around them. When they can look at the social clues: body language, tone of voice, and other clues in the setting, they can predict what might happen next and be prepared for it socially.

 

Weekly Vocabulary:

  • Body Language: Movement, expressions, tone of voice

  • Unrealistic: unlikely to happen.

  • Prediction: To look at the setting/the clues all around you and make a smart guess.
