The best way to Communicate Like a Boss is to talk to Boss!
Students today have never lived in a world without cell phones. They weren't taught how to answer the house phone appropriately, so whether you like it or not, it's our job as educators to teach them these important telephone skills!
This quick partner activity gives students a real-life opportunity to 1) talk to an adult Business-person on the phone, 2) Ask real and meaningful questions for research, 3) practice telephone skills, 4) collaborate as a team to gather information and compile the results into a presentable form! Throw in the presentation element and it's a well-rounded activity!
