Social Story for Using My 5 Point Scale - 5 Point Scales are a great tool for helping students translate abstract concepts like feelings into visual and more concrete behaviors. A suggested way to introduce the use of 5 Point Scales to students is to first present the ideas in a Social Story approach with visuals. Teachers may want to learn about Social Stories before trying to use 5 Point Scales. The tool being offered describes each level of feelings as well as what a student can do at each level to feel better personally as well as how others are likely to respond. This tool should be individualized with student input and teacher support. There can be various times during the school day that the teacher might ask a student to communicate where he or she is on the scale at that moment as well as what action might be taken. Some teachers introduce the concept to the whole class using student input and examples to fill in the blanks. Of course teachers should be careful to avoid using 5 Point Scales as a way of threatening punishments or expressing disapproval but more as a means of communicating and identifying feelings and plans of action to result in better outcomes.
5 Point Scale - How Big Is My Problem - This resource provides visual supports that assist students in more effectively identifying elements of a problem situation, put it into perspective and come up with some solutions. Through conversation with the student and using this tool, the student learns that all problems do not have equal weight or consequences. Potential solutions or at least actions worth trying depend on the results or consequences that are likely to occur if a particular action is taken. Putting things into perspective and having some prearranged plans can help provide an anxious student with some emotional support, while guiding the student to match the intensity of his/her reaction to the actual size of the problem. The processing forms are tools that help the teacher support the student who is learning to recognize that different problems are weighted differently and an appropriate response or action would match in weight or intensity to the problem. Many students have an all or nothing approach to problems assuming that they are severe or not problematic at all. Gradations must be taught not only in problem solving but in every other arena of life. Prioritizing and matching responses to problems according to severity takes practice. Teachers can help students review a behavioral episode by using the process form and talking through the situation with the student, to see if their response matched the problem or if a different response would have been a closer match.
