The Listener's Voice: A Communication Guidance Lesson for Secondary Students

Something about the presence of hormones raging, pressure from peers, parents, and teachers, the future looming ... and who knows what else, but teens have a hard time communicating. Some feel they are not heard so there's no point in talking, some feel they can never say enough. Most feel misunderstood, and few are wondering how others around them feel about what they are communicating. This is a challenging guidance lesson you can implement in your classroom if you feel students are not listening and understanding one another, and it's getting in the way of cooperative learning efforts. This lesson can be modified to fit all levels, even in special education.
