8 Methods for Effectively Improving Student Communication Skills

Understanding 

Play “Save the Last Word for Me”

After reading a text or portion of text. Have students pick a quote or sentence from the text. Divide the students into groups of three, labeling one student A, one B, and the other C in each group. Invite the A students to read one of their chosen quotations to their group. Then students B and C discuss the quotation. What do they think it means? Why do they think these words might be important? To whom? After several minutes, ask the A students to read the back of their card (or to explain why they picked the quotation), thus having “the last word.” This process continues with the B students sharing and then the C students.

Deeper

Acquisition 

Using hand signals can be a great way to help students communicate with each other in a whole group discussion. In my class, I just used two simple hand signals: two fingers to indicate that the student wanted to add on, and thumbs up to indicate that he/she had something new to say (topic change).

Unlike simple hand raising, the hand signals encourage students to be more active listeners, since they have to listen to what the speaker is saying in order to know if their own comment is an add-on or a new thought.
