Young people are often expected to communicate positively without explicit instruction in that area. Good communication skills will prepare students for success in the future, help them manage conflict more effectively, and ensure they are comfortable interacting with others. These lessons give students concrete strategies to practice good communication, including using active listening, understanding nonverbal cues, and effectively expressing their emotions to others.
