Effective Communication Skills

As part of a review of concepts taught in the Health Smart unit, individuals fill out a chart contrasting passive, assertive, and aggressive behaviors. They then practice their assertiveness skills by craft "I" messages and responses to several scenarios. The lesson ends with class members watching a TED Talk video about ways to better conversations.
