A Communication Agreements Lesson Plan


Communication agreements are one of the essential foundations to a dialogic classroom. Agreements should be set at the beginning of a semester and then revisited later on to make sure they still meet the needs of the class.

This sample lesson plan helps faculty design an method for constructing agreements in a first-year seminar or with first-year students.
