This is a sheet I created for my higher level social skills class. It is used to explain to the students that there are different layers of people with whom we interact no matter who you are. You explain to them that no matter who you are a person is always at a Level 2. To make this clear I usually say even police officers have parents or bosses, even the President of the United States has a mom or sometimes even a grandma. We need to monitor and adjust our level of communication according to what level you are interacting with. This was just used as an explanation tool. After that the students started calling each other out on their social hierarchy crimes.
The parents didn't always get it, but the kids got it right away!
