Communication Video Worksheet

“Effective verbal, non-verbal, and online communication is explained in this exceptionally well-produced program. The video and sound quality is excellent, the graphics are simple yet fun, and the music suits the program’s overall tone. This film can easily be incorporated into a class period and would be a superb choice for middle school classes.”
--School Library Journal, January 2010
