Expected and Unexpected Behavior. Including some examples/ Resources.

 Here are some useful ideas for teaching about the following concepts developed by Michelle Winner:
  • I have thoughts about you, you have thoughts about me.  The idea that people are always thinking about one another whether consciously or subconsciously.  We want others to have good thoughts about us as that affects how they regard us and treat us.
  • Expected vs. Unexpected Behaviors.  Expected behaviors are what they sound like.  Actions that are expected in a given situation such as staying seated in your desk at school, eating your food with your fork, burping quietly  Unexpected behaviors are the opposite such as sitting under your desk, eating with your fingers or playing with your food, burping noisily with no consideration for those around you.  (These are obvious examples, the behaviors can also be more subtle).
  • "Weird" thoughts: when we commit unexpected behaviors, people form "weird" thoughts about us; not necessarily bad thoughts, nor thinking WE are weird, but uncomfortable feelings or ideas that may cause others to avoid us.
  • Good thoughts are formed when we behave appropriately.  People generally want to hang out with those they feel comfortable around
  • My actions can affect the feelings of others:  My behaviors (expected or unexpected) can have an influence on how others feel.
  • Think with our eyes:  Learning to determine what others are looking out, inferencing what their eye gaze may tell us about their thoughts, and to make "smart guesses" or predictions about their plans or intentions.

Movies / Video Clips:

Mr. Bean: (all) The bizarre behaviors of Mr. Bean are caricatures of unexpected behaviors. Not only will the students be rolling in laughter at Mr. Bean's antics, but they will get an idea of how people react to his bizarre and unconventional behaviors. This helps start them thinking about how behaviors may be viewed by others and affect their desire to interact socially. Additionally, the fact that Mr. Bean rarely says anything, lots of emotion and intention are projected solely through the use of facial expressions and body language. Clips from Mr. Bean movies or episodes would also help with other aspects of the curriculum such as "using our eyes", "what's he looking at", "what's he thinking about", "making smart guesses", or "reading my plans". Youtube clips

Elf:(all) Will Ferrell's best, most suitable work. Elf is a human raised in an Elf's world. He discovers he is not an elf and starts to realize why he has been different all of his life. When he travels to the human world, he lacks the appropriate social skills to fit in there as well. However, he begins to learn and adapt. Again he represents a caricature for these kids in that his behaviors are "way out there". Youtube clips , Elf Funniest moments compilation Here is a link to PB Video Resources: Elf scenes where specific scenes are provided (great resource!).

Toy Story:(all) Clips might include scenes such as Buzz when he thinks he is a real astronaut rather than realizing he is only a toy and Woody's reaction to him. Sid, the bad boy, mistreating his toys and causing the other toys to be afraid of him. As Michelle has stated in her works, the cartoon character's large eyes work well for learning to think with our eyes.  Sid, Sid's House

Third Rock from the Sun: (T/A) search carefully!  An old sitcom about aliens living on earth.  You will need to scan episodes to locate appropriate clips (some mature ideas) to illustrate socially unexpected behaviors.  Lots of faux pas by the alien characters due to not understanding human culture, feelings, and misunderstanding of abstract language, etc.

As our examples become less caricature-like and more typical of socially pragmatic disabled people, we need to introduce them with a bit more sensitivity, no laughter by the teacher and no sweeping remarks.  Some examples may be found below.

The Middle:(all)   Current sitcom in which the youngest child, Brick, portrays a boy who has some social pragmatic difficulties.  In one episode he is oblivious to his friends at his own birthday, preferring to read and hold his party in a library.  His friends are obviously not enjoying themselves, although Brick loves it.  In other episodes, he attends social skills classes. Brick also tends to echo the last words he says.  This character may hit a bit closer to "home" for some of the children.  Having the students observe and identify his social difficulties may help them begin to recognize some of their own issues.  Here is a fun activity that allows you to choose options and Brick will deliver a personalized greeting (just for fun).
Super Sunday:  Brick becomes a walking encyclopedia of football facts which he shares non-stop during the Super Bowl; eventually everyone tires of the dialogue and leaves.  Good example of unexpected behaviors and how others are affected. Also would be good during the conversation lessons.
Valentine's Day:  Not sure about the whole episode, but there is a heartwarming spot for parents when Frankie and another mom of a "quirky" child hug it out when they realize their children may actually be friends for each other. Not necessarily for the kids, but anyone working on social skills should watch this for some perspective!
Signals:  Social skills classes.  The students are engaged briefly in conversational skills. Our social skills students could practice critiquing their class. 
A Birthday Story:  Brick has a birthday party at the library.

Big Bang Theory:(A)  Another current sitcom.  I have only watched this a few times but several of the characters are obviously on the ASD spectrum.  Tread carefully here because they are young adult characters and the themes are often for mature audiences.  Also by using such a clip, the students may view that as an encouragement to watch the sitcom.  I would only use with an adult client.  Here is a cute episode on Apologizing that is relatively "safe".
Friendship Algorithm Depicts perspective and social skills deficits
Rock Climbing (the result to the Algorythm) Depicts anxiety issues / social deficits  (saying what he thinks to people)
Sheldon can only manage 5 friends, so needs to let one go Lots of examples of inappropriate behavior in groups

Malcolm in The Middle:(all) This link also found on PB Video Resource for Social Skills Development.
Perspective taking & literalness:  Don't play ball in the house
Size of problem vs. size of reaction:
Reese & Goat 
Mall duel

The Social Network:(T/A) Movie about Mark Zuckerberg and FaceBook.  The movie portrays him as a person with social pragrmatic difficulties.  There are several episodes where he makes unkind or unfeeling remarks.  Once again, you must choose carefully some clips as the movie itself contains material inappropriate for children and teenagers.

Strategy for reading body language, situational cues, and facial expressions and making "smart guesses" based on them:  Find a particularly animated scene from a sitcom and turn off the volume.  Have the students watch the situation silently and infer and draw conclusions as to what is happening.  Then replay the clip with volume and see how well they did.  I did this with a clip from a Cosby Show when Denise made Theo a shirt in order to save him some money; with a poor outcome. 
   Cosby Show:  A Shirt Story

Carol Burnett Show:  Charades Part 1 & Part 2  Really funny take on playing charades and people's attitudes, gestures, moods, and body language to indicate these. Warning: some bad language.

Wallace & Gromit:  Claymation cartoons mentioned in Winner's books.  Great large eyes for teaching about thinking with our eyes and making smart guesses about plans and intentions.  Wallace, the man, is a not a great social perspective taker but his dog, Gromit, is an excellent social perspective taker.  I used the cartoon The Wrong Trousers with a group and then we decided to produce our own W&G skit. There are lots of Youtube clips available.  A related cartoon is Shaun of the Sheep.


Commercials are often very creative.  They are also nice and short and have to get the message across quickly.  Here a few that have caught my attention as possible candidates to make points about our social curriculum.

Volkswagen: The Force   In this a child in a Darth Vader costume (complete with soundtrack) tries to use the "force" to move items in his home.  Since he is covered by his costume, we can only surmise his disappointment and frustration by his body language.  His dad comes home in his  new car and as the boy tries to use the "force" one more time.  The father, behind the scene, uses his remote key to start the vehicle.  Then we witness the body language of shock.  Really cute piece!

Bing Overload Commercials  Everytime I see one of these commercials with some character spouting out fountains of info with no social connection to the conversation partner, I think of several of my ASD clients.  Great illustration of information overload, giving too much detail, and talking "at" others rather than "with" them. And the responses of the communication partners are a key part of what we want to point out:  confusion, frustration, anger..
Breakfast, airport
Handbag, You talking to Me?

Ally Bank with Kids:  These are priceless for the genuine facial expressions on the kids when someone does something unexpected Check all of them out on Youtube.  The "moral" stated in the commercial is in ( ) if it might be applicable to your lesson.  But you can always extrapolate your own messages such as observing the various facial expressions, how did the kids feel, why did they feel that way, what was the unexpected behavior by the man, what would have been the expected behavior, how do we sometimes do this type of thing to our friends, or has this happened to you
Would you like a pony?
Would you like to go for a ride on that bike? (ridiculous conditions)
Have some fun with that truck.
Do you want to play hide and seek? (wrong to leave someone hanging when they are counting on you)
Can I have some ice cream? (it's wrong to treat new friends better than old friends)
You took my eggs. (it's wrong to take other people's stuff)
Can I play with those toys? (wrong to give someone the "run around")
Behind the Scenes of making the commercials (For those concerned about these commercials looks like everyone had lots of fun!)

Geico Commercials :
  • The Caveman commercials are classic for being sensitive to the feelings of others.  You can also play the early ones and discuss why the cavemen are offended.  Then play the later ones that are more subtle and discuss why the caveman does not want to be in a Geico commercial (plays on previously learned information or inferred information).
  • The Piggy Cried Weee depicts an annoying little pig that can be used to discuss being aware of how our behavior might impact others. 
  • The commercials with the questions man also have lots of figurative language references: Does the buck stop here?  Does a woodchuck chuck wood?  Does a drill sargent make a good therapist? (being insensitive to others).
  • Gecko often gets into awkward situations such as spending the boss' first dollar bill in the vending machine, having to catch the boss as he falls
  • The commercials with assisted story telling are cute too. 
  • Squirrel commercials: hidden motives?
I seriously never realized how creative the Geico Ad teams must be until just now!

Allstate Insurance Mayhem: Unexpected behavior, inattention and the problems it can create, consequences of extreme emotions and why we need to control them (teenage girl episode).

Xerox commercials:  Mets commercial is good for "foot in mouth" issues.  Marriot Hotels workers show "one upmanship" and can be used in a lesson about not trying to make yourself look better than the other person.

Not a commercial, but a good short spot that shows people often have inner struggles that others cannot see.  Can be used to teach that we don't need to tell everyone every problem we have.  Also, the point of the video clip, is to teach that our behaviors or actions can have an effect on others:  we should try to be kind and friendly to others.

Expect the unexpected - No thank you!  I don’t know about you, but I am a self-proclaimed type-A control freak.  I like to have a plan for everything with a back up plan if  needed.  I even like to have back up plans for my back up plans!  So, when the unexpected happens, I will admit that it can ruffle my feathers, resulting in unexpected behaviors. So, “expected” and “unexpected” doesn’t  just involve what happens to you; it is how we respond behaviorally to different situations.  Michelle Garcia, Winner and Pamela Cooke’s, You Are a Social Detective, explains and defines these two types of responses.  

Expected behaviors are actions or behavioral responses that are relevant and expected for the given situation; they are behaviors that make others around you feel respected and comfortable.  For example, sitting in your desk, a small verbal “yes” when you see you’ve gotten a good grade on a test, or maybe being a bit upset with a bad grade.  Unexpected behaviors are those behaviors that are not expected in a given situation.  For example, crawling under the desk in class, yelling profanity at teachers when you get a bad grade, or crying uncontrollably when you don’t get your favorite treat in your lunch.  Unexpected behaviors make others around you feel unsure or uncomfortable.   “The goal in all of this is to help our students learn to observe social situations more carefully and understand that behaviors are linked to others’ emotions, and how each of us feels about another's behavior affects how we treat each other. At the end of the day, when we do expected behaviors it makes us feel better about ourselves” (Social Thinking, ).  It is important to teach our children that their behaviors and actions can affect the feelings of others just as their feelings can be impacted by the behavior of others.  

One way to improve a student’s understanding of expected and unexpected situations and behaviors is to incorporate this vocabulary into the daily climate of the classroom.  As situations and behaviors arise in the classroom, targeting and talking about the terms “expected” and “unexpected”  gives teachers the opportunity to  acknowledge and praise students when they are exhibiting expected behaviors for the given situation, as well as directly informing students when they are exhibiting  unexpected behaviors without the need for a long lecture about the specific behaviors being displayed.  Incorporating this vocabulary into lessons is also beneficial and can help students generalize this skill to multiple settings, situations and environments.  

Some sample questions:  

  • Was that situation expected or unexpected?  How did the character respond - with an expected or unexpected behavior?  
  • How did the character act in an expected or unexpected manner?
  • When _____________- displayed the unexpected behaviors, how did the other characters feel?  How do you know?  What would have been an expected behavior in this situation?
  • List the expected or unexpected behaviors the different character displayed in the story?  How did the expected behaviors affect others?  How did the unexpected behaviors affect others?  How do you know?
  • If _______________ had acted differently how would this have changed the outcome of the story?
  • In a different situation or setting would the behavior be expected or unexpected?  
  • Does the setting impact whether the behavior was expected or unexpected? How?
  • How did the behavior of ____________ impact other characters in the story?
  • How did unexpected behavior of ______________impact the outcome for that character?

Expected v. Unexpected Behaviors

I tried my best, although it was my first blowjob, but I saw how they do it in porn, then they take it entirely, then lick it on the. Sides, fingering the balls in the palm of your hand. The taste of the grease was not as nasty as I thought.
