Effective Communication in the 21st Century

GSEELA SL1 Effectively engage ina range of c ollaborative discussions

  • This week we are stepping full steam into the Georgia Standards of Excellence content for 6th grade English& Language Arts. 

    Our big question or essential question for this standard is "what are effective ways to communicate in the 21st century?"

    Monday & Tuesday we will see how personality contributes to the way people communicate. It is amazing how we often forget that we were all created differently and therefore communicate differently. With that said, is all communication effective? If the message I am trying to convey is not delivered or understood, then my communication method (s) may not be very effective.

    Monday- Students will be introduced to the standard. Students will understand the VERB in the standard. This ensures they know what the standard wants them to DO.  Students will be given a personality quiz and determine what personality color they are and how that personality interacts or communicates with the world around them. 

    Tuesday- Students will examine who has like-colored personalities and collaboratively create a list of traits other than the ones listed on the quiz. What ways do certain colors prefer to communicate?

    PARENTS, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE STRESS TO OUR STUDENTS HOW TO BEHAVE AT SCHOOL. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO LEARN IF WE ARE CONSTANTLY HAVING TO BE REDIRECTED.
