Children today are going through a lot-they are busy with school, involved in extracurricular activities, and trying to navigate the world of COVID and other concerns. Teachers and parents are busy too-with work, school, and parenting activities. How will they have the time to teach valuable skills such as manners and respect to children? These are "soft skills"; the skills necessary to work with others and be a respected and valuable citizen in the workplace of tomorrow. Soft Skills for Kids: In Schools, at Home, and Online, 2nd Edition, focuses on ways that teachers and parents can work together to teach soft skills to the children in their lives. This book is not a curriculum program or set of lessons to help children, but rather a series of "teachable moments" in which adults teach strategies to children as they happen. Finally, as the education of children has changed recently due to the pandemic with an increased number of children learning online, this book will be a great resource for how adults can work together to help children learn soft skills-in schools, at home, and online.
Soft Skills for Kids: At School, At Home, and Online, 2nd Edition uses a child-centered approach to discuss how to nurture fourteen soft skills in elementary-aged children. Often overshadowed by the academic curriculum, mastery of soft skills such as composure and teamwork is widely recognized as critical to the success of students and workers of all ages. Nancy Armstrong Melser addresses each skill in detail, with clear definitions, illustrations, and ideas that teachers and parents can use to reinforce the skill at school and at home. The book also addresses the opportunities and challenges involved for both teachers and parents trying to build soft skills in online learning environments during remote teaching. This book serves as an excellent resource for administrators, teachers, and parents working together in their efforts to support their children. -- Jay Fogleman, associate professor of education, University of Rhode Island
