I was never taught Listening in school. Reading, writing, speaking, languages, yes. Listening, nope. Yet I was told (and we still tell our kiddos) to listen. I was expected to listen. But I was not taught the strategies for effective listening, which is 50% of any communication exchange. Seems like an important topic, no?
In true TeamMastermind fashion, your students will have a blast finding out how good (or not!) they are at listening to and communicating a set of instructions to their teammates. And, as with all TeamMastermind lessons, they have nothing to lose if they fail...the lesson shines through even if they are unable to complete the activity successfully.
In this Mindwinder:
**Springboard for discussion
**An engaging hands on activity
**ReMindwinder fun word game
**Appendix with complete instructions for this (and all) TeamMastermind Mindwinders
