Speaking out

‘Speaking out' strategies provide the opportunity for students to develop, practice and demonstrate the Health and Physical Education outcomes. They can refine the skills of active listening, assertive communication and negotiation.

By analysing situations where two or more people are communicating, students will be able to determine ways to communicate effectively their individual needs, preferences or beliefs without causing conflict. Understanding basic negotiating skills will contribute to students becoming safer and healthier.

The strategies included in this section are:

  • Chook house speeches

  • Health promotion

  • Think-pair-share

  • Toss a die

  • Vox pop interviews

  • Partner retell
