Lesson Plan: Oral, Written, and Remote Communication in the Classroom

No longer can we say that 21st Century jobs are jobs “of the future.” Those jobs are here. As we embrace STEM and all of the amazingness that comes with it, we must be sure not to allow communication skills to fall to the wayside. In the 21st (and 22nd) centuries, much of our communication will be remote. In order to prepare, students must:

  • Understand communication techniques for coworkers in other offices, buildings, or countries.
  • Be able to understand cultural norms to make international communication a success.
  • Hone their written and oral communication skills to facilitate progress in the workplace.

This five-day unit helps students build workplace communication skills.
