The Purpose of Communication

Primary tabs

As I reflected on last year, I felt like we had lots of successes as a class. Students made great progress with their reading and writing skills. Their ability to communicate had come a long way, and I felt like they were able to have small group conversations with minimal support. I had started to see students transfer some of the social and emotional learning we were doing into their everyday lives. It was exciting to hear a student talk about how he had told himself he should be flexible when his dad’s work schedule changed and he couldn’t take him to the movies. I realized that what I really wanted for the next school year was for students to be able to say that they had taken the things they learned and applied them to their everyday lives.


I knew some of the social and emotional skills were transferring, but I wasn’t so sure about some of the other skills we were working on. Were they making sense of what they were reading at home and truly enjoying the process? Were they able to communicate their thinking about a text? Could they argue their position about a family matter and support it with evidence?

I realized that the reason kids were able to use the social and emotional skills at home was that we had spent a lot of time talking about why they would want to use them. Why is it helpful to be flexible in some situations? Why would we want to be persistent with a task? Knowing the why meant they could apply the skill to any situation.

So often I have a purpose in mind for a lesson, project, or discussion, but fail to share it with students. I decided I wanted to make a real effort this year to make the purpose of all our work clear to students. When we began to discuss communication in September, I made sure that we had several discussions about the reasons why people communicate. We read Communication by Aliki, and talked about how people communicate, and why they communicate. 

Over the course of a few days, we talked about what oral, written, and physical communication are. We practiced physically communicating with each other by acting out different emotions. “Show your partner you’re scared. Show them you’re sleepy.” As you might expect, they loved this!

The “why” part of the chart took longer to talk about, and we’re still adding to it. Whenever we find a new reason why someone needs to communicate, we add it to the list. We also revisit the list periodically to remind ourselves why we’re discussing something. See attached picture of chart

So far I feel like knowing the purpose of communication has made them more invested in their conversations. It has set a foundation for all other oral language work we will do this year.

Stock communication apps are surely becoming a thing of the past and we are looking for faster, effective communication apps. Even though many of the newer instant messaging apps are similar, we still prefer one over the other. It is the small differences that help us decide which one is best.

A pair of steals in his System, stephen curry shoes in the first quarter, and the two steals to garage a total of 106 times inside the playoffs career steals, which usually transcends the rick Barry, became the steals inside the history of the warriors team inside the playoffs.

Garage into seven three-pointers inside game, this also let his / her playoff three-pointers hit number approximately 261, match the Robert horry, ninth three points in playoff historical past list. Distance comes 8th Chauncey billups, he additionally only six three points.

37 points in merely three games, came curry shoes alive, and this is his shock as to, including playoffs) eighth score 35 + video game with three alone, greater than 7 times of Russell westbrook, the surface of the league.

So many record the very first world war, there is no doubt that this game can be considered to be the garage in this series played the very best game. The first about three games, garage is averaging 29. 3 points and 4. 7 rebounds, 6 facilitates, shooting 40. 3% in addition to 35. 3% from a few, compared with the typical season shooting stage, a particular degree of decline, though the game, garage completely nuts. The blazers in numerous players to hound him or her, but no one can certainly disturb his rhythm. Storage area, as it were, in the game again to learn "day day" feeling.

11 three-point brand out hand, hit kd shoes seven goals, including vast distances of three points. Wearing warriors baseball hat sitting in the stands to watch the old garage, it also appears to obtain son's playing god look like some incredible performance. The lens towards the old garage, he can't help but shook their head.

Of course, no matter what other people think, garage three points for their own performance with overall confidence. In the 3 rd quarter the warriors using 88-58 big lead your blazers, garage outside the three-point line again, the ball clear of the one hand, this individual turned back field, the ball firmly in the basket, the whole pandemonium. Can put the three points on this state, the other gathering can say what?

To be a core point guard, garage and also other three split the difference is he is the team mentor and organizer. In various other words, he can't resemble novak on the perimeter around anticipating kd shoes someone else to offer him the ball. We take novak to a comparison, everything also - reference counted for individuals each a 3-pointer allows objects, and to moment, after statistics, novak found this season hit 3-pointers, 149, 146 is a teammate's pass and reach; Three-point shots hit the next more this season Ryan - Anderson is not any exception, he hit curry shoes throughout 213, has 206 will depend on your friend's passing.

The garage He all of the 3-pointer this season, you will find 105 of 3 isn't sending (272), put simply, is to create opportunities, nasty sto vote. This trick from the team's star, such because flow of harden, vladimir radmanovic, kobe Bryant, Paul, but often because an individual errs, physical strength intake, to the number of that time period few, and the hit ratio is just not high. But obviously is definitely an exception in the Treasury, his three-point shot 105 times seriously isn't assists quantity highest inside alliance,stephen curry shoes even better compared to lebron James thrown in more all 3-pointers, along with the shooting is in the league all five this sort of not assists free-throw shooting players from the fifth (41. 8%), both equally quality and quantity. Taken together, the three points to be able to thrown into space seriously isn't an easy thing, must have the forty percent three-point shots must create his own pictures, this how tired! One of the most precious is, no issue when and where, and learning to make moves, garage has a top percentage. It is no wonder which the manager of the warriors when Bob myers not too long ago told the Associated Media said: "as long as it's garage, to obtain the ball is reasonable. ".

Well, hold up. I used to be a blogging newbie too. I started my blog , and I knew less than nothing about blogging. In fact it was only the week before I’d learnt what a blog was.Now I know a ton about them, and my blog’s doing pretty well – I hope i'll receive more than 300,000 unique visitors per month which makes me consider myself someone you could listen to and learn from when it comes to building your own blog. I’m not some sort of Guru, but I certainly do know the basics. I promise it’ll be simple, relatively easy, and definitely easy to understand (no stupid jargon). Sound good?Awesome, let’s move on.

Throw three points just isn't the whole garage regular work, and don't forget about, Stephen curry is the particular team in assists in addition to steals, he averaged 6. 7 assists inside regular season, 14 inside the league and the playoffs stephen curry shoes can be averaging 9. 3 assists because league the first! Let's imagine a picture, 40 minutes per game inside the Treasury, attack launched a multitude of times, there are always several ball he wasn't inside outside, but the basketball inside, attracted a dual... What will happen subsequently? There was a man he is able to tell you the reply, curry shoes he called clay : Thompson, from the gold state warriors, he made this season 211 3-pointers, finished third from the league, and that 211 3-pointers, 68 comes from the assists of Stephen curry.

12-13 time of year to contrast the garage and ray Allen with '05 -' 06 : Allen into 269 3-pointers, and they are the Seattle supersonics. Of which year, Allen's 269 associated with 653 three-point shots, opportunity 41. 2%, as Stephen : 272 of 600 images in his Arsenal, often 45. 3%; That yr, Alan ball attack create 3 ratio is below a quarter, compared along with 38. 6% in databases; That year, Allen's assists the number 3. 7, less compared to Treasury for three allows. So the outline, the image of your alternative 3-pointers hand along the garage outline: he not merely completed the sharpshooter background, his teammates for his / her creation of free-throw opportunities into; He will also look for opportunities as well, through the ball discovery, stopped for no helps 3-pointer of shots. Additionally, he also can cross assists, "create" another glass pitcher - clay - Thompson! Besides can catch vote, will likely urgent stopped, can build more opportunities to some others, this star, unique! Now i am kevin durant shoes afraid, just use "striker" two words are already unable to define Stephen curry, must also be in with any "great" rhetoric.
