Description

Class Experience

Students will build upon their knowledge of body language to increase conversational skills and effectively communicate. Students will be introduced to open and closed body language and the main components of each. Students and the teacher will engage in a discussion about specific scenarios and how to "react" to open or closed body language displayed by others. In this class, students will be given opportunities to practice identifying and using open and closed body language in order to more effectively make friends and create positive interactions with peers, teachers and family members. 
As a classroom special education teacher, I have taught many social skills lessons in which we focus on communication with peers. 
Homework will not be assigned however learners are encouraged to practice what they have learned outside of the classroom with family members and peers. 
Learner progress will be monitored through active participation and on an informal assessment basis throughout the duration of class.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will be referring to the key aspects of body language and it's importance, as highlighted in this scholarly article:
