Communication

This Communication lesson plan also includes:

In preparation for a game in which they guess the type of communication used in a scenario, scholars examine and discuss the four types of communication: passive, aggressive, assertive, and passive-aggressive. Learners identify "I" statements and practice their refusal skills to combat negative pressures. Peers then role-play their new skills and provide a written response.
