All these styles are always used by people while communicating, when teaching this lesson, the teacher is suppose to explain to the learners all the styles but after she or he should base on Assertive as the best way to communicate. Overview When Manuela reached the school, she found pupils reading their previous life skills notes which was about communication behavior. Manuela was so impressed by pupils and the life skills teacher for the wonderful practice. Manuela greeted the pupils, she told them to close their books and remind her about the previous lesson, since pupils were reading their notes , they had all the information about the previous lesson which was good. After that Manuela introduced another lesson, communication styles, this is another important lesson to pupils, this lesson enables the pupils to learn different styles of communication and it makes them to understand that Assertive is the best way to communicate. Manuela explained to the pupils each styles at a time, Passive behavior, is the state of being silent and apologizing all the time and not being able to decide between what is wrong and good. Manuela also told the pupils that somebody who is Passive will always be silent, closing her with the hands while talking, apologizing a lot always putting other people at their expense and a mongoose others. Assertive behavior, Manuela told the the pupils that, Assertive means being confident and always a yes is a yes and no is a no without change.
