Social Skills Cinema: Lessons for the Real World

In May 2011, The Texas Advisory Committee for the Education of Students with Visual Impairments offered teachers, parents, and students with visual impairments across the United States and Canada an opportunity to submit a short video on the theme, "Social Skills: Putting the 'C' in Cool." The contest provided a perfect opportunity to highlight a favorite lesson to teach social skills at home, school, or in the community. In 2012, the contest was continued with the theme, "Lessons for the Real World."

For each winning video, you will find a short description, lesson plan, and the video lesson.

We are pleased to say the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP) partnered with The Texas Advisory Committee for the Education of Students with Visual Impairments to provide captions and description for each video.

You may view the videos and lesson plans on the websites of the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) www.tsbvi.edu, DCMP www.dcmp.org, and on DCMP's YouTube channel.
