Communicating with friends and family can bring us joy and frustration! Why is that? In this class, we will identify bridges and barriers to effective communication. Also, if you’re like most teens, a ton of your communication is done through texting and social media. When you spend a lot of time looking at a screen, it’s easy to forget how to engage in real-life, face-to-face communication—a critical skill for your future success. This class will guide you through conversation starters, conflicts, challenging friendships, talking to adults and more. We’ll have fun role-playing, observing, journaling, watching movies and discussing one on one communication that will set you up for success.
Articles, hand-outs, and videos will all be found online. No textbook required.
