Abstract
PeopleSmart-1 teaching basic friendship skills, is the first video program to focus on the specific skills needed to make a "real" friend. Students will learn the 10 best ways to meet people, how to distinguish between an acquaintance and a real friend, and what to do to maintain a good relationship.
PeopleSmart-2 helps students learn the difference between trust and gullibility and that "niceness" does not always mean "goodness." This program focuses on teaching students who and when to trust, and how to recognize and deal with people who don't care about their best interests.
Notes
Although originally designed for students with mild to moderate learning, emotional and cognitive disabilities, LifeSmart Curriculum series is appropropriate for any population in need of a comprehensive review of basic life skills.

Abstract
Four stories, told first in English and then in Spanish, explore the imaginative lives of children. The first two tales by Max Tell were originally written in English and have been translated into Spanish by Silvana Goldemberg. The other stories were written by Goldemberg and "interpreted" by Tell, rendering the English and Spanish versions subtly different. "Johnny Small" concerns friendship built on an act of kindness between a very small boy and an enormous boy. "Rodney Scribble" is about a wacky society built around the idea that legible writing is a menace. "Martin, the Brave Prince" shows his aunt what he wants to be when he grows up. In "The Smile Plant," a little girl copes creatively with the loss of a tooth.

This game provides specific training in social language skills. Young students learn what is socially acceptable and what isn't as they help the loveable sheepdog, Maxwell, find his manor.

- Conversation Skills—giving information, asking questions, and using appropriate voice style for various situations
- Being a Friend—getting along with peers in a variety of situations that involve sharing, apologizing, complimenting, saying "no," joining a group, borrowing, lending, handling teasing, consoling, protecting, accusing, and tattling
- Self-Control—controlling impulsivity, taking responsibility, and asking permission
- Be Polite—using polite forms, such as please, thank you, and excuse me, in specific situations
- Follow the Rules—know the classroom and social rules (e.g., raising your hand, not interrupting, returning something you've borrowed)
