COMMUNICATION PROCESS LESSON PLAN
Suggested Method of Instruction:
The teacher or facilitator could either read through the content of the lesson or could require the students to read it on their own. After going over the content, students should answer the questions on their own in writing. When they are finished, the answers can be discussed aloud or could be reviewed by the teacher or facilitator. With Question #3, the teacher or facilitator may choose to watch the show with the student(s) and discuss The Communication Process's elements at the same time.
Students' responses to the questions should be graded based on their honest ability to reflect on what the question was asking. Older students will obviously have more complex responses than younger students. Responses should demonstrate that the students have given serious consideration to them.
Possible answers to Question #2 include talking to more people, using more formal language instead of slang, practicing the presentation, etc.
Question #5's answer should focus on the fact that hearing is a reflex that our bodies do without being told. Listening requires us to focus on the sound we hear and make meaning of it.
Optional Follow-up Activity:
After discussing Question #3, students can create their own talk or court show segment. They can work together and act it out for the teacher or facilitator. If there are not enough people involved in the lesson to make that feasible, students could create their own script for a talk or court show segment instead.
