Becoming a Social Detective!

Today we read the book You are a Social Detective.  With the help of this book, we talked about how we have 'social smarts' to notice when a behaviour is expected or unexpected.  An expected behaviour is when you do something that is expected of you.  For example, during large class lessons, students are expected to sit quietly, listen to the speaker and think and respond to what is being learned.  An unexpected behaviour might be a student who interrupts or calls out answers, which would not send a good message to those who are around you.  We will continue to be social detectives - and use the clues sent by those around us - to help us to use our expected behaviours.
