Rick Stevens, Senior VP of HR for Boeing once stated, "We hire for hard skills. We fire for soft skills." While there are countless resources available to support creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration, very little content is available to support students with communication…the highest rated of the 4 Cs among employers. Join Lisa Johnson as she shares how to easily thread curricular content through the art of communication, while incorporating the 3 other Cs so that you can cultivate oral, written, visual, and nonverbal communication skills. In addition, Lisa will explore a wide range of activities including email etiquette, positive interdependence strategies, curation, digital portfolios, and more. Discover how you can better prepare your students for the future by nurturing the Neglected C!
