Teacher Prep | Youth & This Session
How do you communicate with your students? Do you communicate with them in ways that you are comfortable or ways that they are comfortable? There are good arguments for both; you have to be who you are and youth won’t hear you unless you speak in a way that they can understand. The biggest difference in how we communicate with youth is the platforms that we use. We used to only have to worry about face-to-face, writing a note, and calling on the phone, but now we have to think about Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, and texting. I’m sure youth would even laugh at this list because there are so many other platforms through which youth communicate. What hasn’t changed is that you need to be consistent with your communication. Whether you have an online presence once a week or every day, make sure you are there regularly. Your youth will come to expect it.
