Summary: We want to strengthen student's confidence in speaking up and communicating. With better communications skills, students will be less fearful of asking a “wrong question,” or feeling shy about asking a question or making a statement in front of a class.
What are QI Skills:
Qi (pronounced 'key') skills are mostly communication skills, but they also include emotional aspects such as confidence and courage. These skills include ME and WE skills.
- ME skills are self-management skills and includes keeping track of your work, good behavior, and respecting other people and teachers.
- WE skills, or playing Well with others, includes group work, teamwork in sports, and working together with your friends.
The course will consist of 2 classes of 45 mins each.
