Learning Objectives
To educate people about the importance of Assertive behavior
Manuela and Lorna went to kigalama c to teach the community members about the importance of Assertive behavior in communication skills. When Manuela and Lorna reached the village, they found community members waiting for them, they waited for short time so that others can also join them, when they came then Lorna started to teach by introducing Manuela to the community members after that she reviewed the previous lessons. After that Manuela joined Lorna with a new topic which was the importance of Assertive behavior among people. Manuela started by asking community members questions about Assertive behavior if they could be having any idea about that, unfortunately none of them knew, then Manuela taught them, as she was teaching, she would ask questions, the members in class would respond, during her class she told them that it is very important to practice Assertive behavior because it is the best way to communicate with one another. After teaching Manuela and Lorna demonstrated to the community members all the behavior of communication styles. For example they looked at Passive ways, Assertive and Aggressive behavior, it was fun. After that they told the community members to think about any role play about behavior of communication styles and they will demonstrate it next time
