CommunicateForever provides Project Based Learning in various ways:
Students can do some of the following:
- Use specific skills, or any skill of their choice, and be prepared to share their story in class. Younger students may be asked to first discuss their story with the class facilitator to help ensure that only appropriate content is shared with others in a class.
- Keep a journal that contains stories about their use of, or lack of use of, many of the communication skills.
- Answer the CommunicateForever Emotional Intelligence survey once, and then again and again, to hopefully show continuous improvement. How often? Maybe do the survey again at least once each semester.
- Answer the Frequency of Use survey to indicate which skills are being used and which are not being used.
- Create written dialogs that can be improvements on the way family members communicate.
- Create written dialogs that help improve communication between friends, fellow students, or work associates.
- Upload dialogs to the CommunicateForever website, specific to a skill.
- Create a ‘Family Account’ and invite parents, children, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, or whoever you want to include in your ‘Family’ and ask each person to answer the emotional intelligence survey. Each family member gets a PRIVATE score for Emotional Intelligence. Then all members can view the family’s average EI score.
- Provide some recognition for the use of a skill: A high five, a verbal acknowledgement, a simple congratulation, a thank you from a child to a parent, or from a parent to a child, a hug, or something extra in their allowance.
- Send suggestioned additions for this list to firstname.lastname@example.org.
