Cultivating Communication in the Classroom by Lisa Johnson is a great resource for any administrator or educator at any level. Here is more about Lisa's book:
Students are expected to be innovators, creative thinkers, and problem solvers. But what if they can't communicate their ideas persuasively? Knowing how to share ideas is as crucial as the ideas themselves. Unfortunately, many students don’t get explicit opportunities to hone this skill.
Cultivating Communication in the Classroom will help educators design authentic learning experiences that allow students to practice their skills. Readers will find:
Real world insights into how students will be expected to communicate in their future careers and education.
Strategies for teaching communication skills throughout the curriculum.
Communication Catchers for igniting ideas.
