Students that receive frequent discipline referrals or are involved in constant conflict with their peers often use aggressive communication styles – they are confrontational, accusatory, and hostile. However, while teaching problem-solving skills to these students, we have to be careful not focus solely on passive strategies like ignoring or walking away, but also include assertiveness skills like “talking friendly” or “talking firmly.” Teaching these skills are also crucial for students that are frequent victims of bullying, who tend to be more passive communicators.

This pack contains several posters to help students learn the 4 main communication styles: passive, passive-aggressive, aggressive, and assertive. It also has activities to help them evaluate their own communication style and learn healthier, more assertive ways of interacting with others and solving problems. It contains:

- Teaching Communication Styles 2-page teacher guide
- Description Posters (Assertive, Passive, Passive-Aggressive and Aggressive)
- Visual Poster (images of each type)
- “What Does It Look Like?” 4-box graphic organizer
- Voice Tone Chart
- Name the Style Question Cards (36 cards and decorative card backs)
- Act out the Style Scenario Cards (24 cards and decorative card backs)
- My Communication Style Reflection Sheet
- Assertiveness Bill of Rights
