Join our discussion about what a “social contract” is and how it is developed for adult learners to successfully communicate and socialize with others. In our present educational systems, we have many so-called contracts that address positive behavioral supports in the kindergarten thru high school classrooms. However, when teachers, counselors and adult learners/students from varying ethnic and cultural groups are engaged in the classroom or workplace environment a new form of social contract must be developed and implemented differently. The staff of White Apple Institute encourage listeners to call in to our show and share how they have developed social contracts (written or oral) that help us communicate and socialize for success in the classroom and the workplace.
