9I. Communication Skills for Conflict Resolution

ColWrit 9I. Communication Skills for Conflict Resolution

3 units

Aristotle once said, “To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.” For those of us who do want to make something of our lives, conflict is inevitable. In this course, students will develop their conflict resolution skills while improving their mastery of English.  Students will engage in interactive mediation role–plays, and practice a complex set of English skills (grammatical accuracy, speaking and listening, pronunciation, and new vocabulary and idioms) as well as sociolinguistic skills (body language, formality, and tone).  The course includes a fieldwork component to help students apply their problem-solving and communication skills.

Please note, students enrolling in Colwrit/ESL 9I course must take an online placement exam.
