This video is modeling the following social language skill: Knowing When to Stay Quiet. I have students who blurt out when they’re not supposed to. With help from a fellow SLP, I made this video to contrast their inappropriate behavior with staying quiet.
I used this video today with a middle school special education class that has a tendency to yell out during quizzes and other activities. Prior to showing the video, I asked the students to brainstorm situations in which it’s necessary to stay quiet. During the video I asked the following questions: What did the student do when he was/was not quiet? What did the teacher do when the student was/was not quiet? How do you think the teacher felt when the student was/was not quiet? After watching the video, we role-played not staying quiet and staying quiet.
