Repair the Conversation

We can think of a conversation like a train on the tracks. We want to keep it running smoothly. If students have a communication breakdown, they should:

  • Realize the conversation is off track - is someone giving us signs that the conversation isn’t going smoothly?
  • Next, figure out where it went off track.
  • Last, think of a way to get it back on track and running smoothly.
