Product Description
This single-sheet lesson provides a way to help explain the hidden rules of conversation and even gives a step by step script, for students who struggle with interrupting. The top half of the page walks a student through two basic steps in knowing whether they might be talking--or interrupting--at an inappropriate time.
Step 1 reminds them to look around at the behavior of their peers (situational awareness and a sense of the perspective of others in the room is a starting point for knowing how to act). Step 2 then guides them into a method for discovering whether a partner, friend or teacher truly is in a space to have a reciprocal conversation (and since it's a scripted visual cue with a simple Yes/No response, this transaction can be completely nonverbal--it only involves pointing by the other person). Not meant to be an exhaustive lesson on every possible direction a conversation can go, but simply a handy tool for corrective behavioral feedback. Bonus tip: Once the major implications of this lesson are learned, teachers can cut the page in half and laminate only the bottom (so that just the voice bubble and Yes/No boxes showing) and this creates a nice, portable cue card for students to carry with them or slip inside of a folder throughout the school day.
