AcknowledgmentsThe methods and procedures outlined in this social skills curriculum
have been developed over a period of years. They were developed to
address the critical issue of providing early social skills training to
young African-American males. The author was of the opinion that
a functional systematic approach to teaching social skills was needed
in order to equip these boys for functioning successfully in society.Compiling this textbook was not an individual endeavor. It would
have been impossible to complete this awesome task without the
assistance of others. A deep sense of gratitude is extended to the
following schools in the Baltimore City Public School System and to
my colleagues at Coppin State College in Baltimore, Maryland:
| The Sinclair Lane Elementary School and its staff.|
| The Robert Coleman Elementary School and its
| Robert Solomon, Division of Exceptional Children,
Baltimore City Public Schools.|
|Mrs. Lavania Fitzpatrick and Doctor Geraldine
Waters for proofing the manuscript.|
|Ms. Veronica Mack and Ms. LaVonne Stewart for
the first typing of the manuscript.|
A special thanks is given to Dr. Bernadette Francisco, Adjunct
Professor of Special Education, Coppin State College, for her sincere
commitment and efforts in proofing, editing and typing the final
