Our Effective Conversations lesson plan teaches students strategies for having effective conversations with others in a variety of contexts. Students are tasked with holding practice conversations with each other, coming up with topics for conversation as a group, and learning to use conversation maps in order to recognize the correct order for a conversation. Students are also asked to practice inserting words into a given example conversation.
At the end of the lesson, students will have learned and practiced the rules of a conversation and will be able to hear the ideas of others and communicate their own.
