Description: In Communication Skills, the student prepares to become an effective and well-rounded communicator – at home, in school, in the community, in post-secondary education, and in the global marketplace. The student develops, practices, and enhances both intra-personal and interpersonal communication skills through units on personal/social responsibility and career pathways/readiness. In addition, the student studies group processes, such as decision-making, conflict resolution, and team building, and learns to work both independently and collaboratively with others. Other areas of study include media literacy, study skills, test-taking strategies, and project development, using technology as a learning and presentation tool.
