What is a healthy and compassionate way of communicating? The theoretical part of this work will mostly consist of answering the following questions: What is important to talk about? What can help pupils and teachers deal with everyday situations?
In other words: How can we give teachers and students in secondary schools the tools they need to work with compassionate communication in and out of the classroom? This is the main question I want to answer. I want to apply this theory to the class context in a way that helps both teachers and pupils create a strong learning environment that enhances both the well-being and involvement of everyone working together in the classroom.
The next step will be to implement these tools during English class. I plan on working out guidelines that grant teachers an easy way to implement this way of communicating in their English lessons. How can we implement compassionate communication within the subject-specific objectives of EFL classes?
This will hopefully serve as a stepping stone for every teacher that wants to use these materials and implement them in their own course or subject.
