Being able to communicate and build arguments to defend your opinion are fundamental 21st century skills

 

Building arguments and standing your ground is essential for any person living among others. Being able to communicate and build arguments to defend your opinion are fundamental 21st century skills which need to be practiced in class. Communicating the results of an activity and explaining the procedure followed help students work on these exact skills as they find themselves in the position to present their work to others and justify the decisions they made during the process. Remember also that most students like taking credit and being rewarded for their work. Giving the opportunity to students to present their work is a kind of reward for them and it shows that you value their work.
