Social Town Citizens

Discover 82 New Unthinkables for Superflex® to Outsmart!

Edited and Expanded Upon by Stephanie Madrigal, Michelle Garcia Winner and Pamela Crooke

This latest edition in the Superflex series, for children aged 8-11, is a compilation work that introduces 82 new Unthinkables and 14 new Thinkables submitted by Social Town citizens of all ages, which have been edited and expanded upon by Stephanie Madrigal and Michelle Garcia Winner. Unthinkables and Thinkables are grouped by theme/category for easy reference by student or adult, and each entry includes the character's power, related information about its characteristics, and strategies to defeat the Unthinkable or bolster a Thinkables' help.

Superflex's Very Cool Five-Step Power Plan
The focal point of the book is a brand new teaching strategy developed by Stephanie Madrigal and Michelle Garcia Winner called Superflex’s Very Cool Five-Step Power Plan. It provides students with even more tools to strengthen their social processing. In the Power Plan, students learn about 5 critical powers:

  • Decider: the ability to stop, decide, and describe which Unthinkable(s) is trying to overpower your superflexible thinking.
  • Social Detective: the ability to stop and observe the situation and the people in it.
  • Brakester: the power to stop and think to discover the hidden rules.
  • Flex DoBODY: the power to use flexible thinking to determine strategies to use to do what’s expected.
  • Cranium Coach: using self-talk with help from your built-in brain coach!
Madrigal and Winner apply the Five-Step Plan to demonstrate flexible social thinking to each of the 14 original Unthinkables. They then go on to do the same with 46 of the new Unthinkables and Thinkables. Sixty teaching examples are included overall.

Five teaching handouts, all characters, and expanded teaching materials are contained on the CD included with the book.
