In this learning activity you'll analyze the impact of various factors in their lives. They are then transformed by a new identity. They analyze the potential impact of this new identity and compare it to their initial lives.
Learners examine how language can interfere with clear communication. They select examples of ambiguity, assuring expressions, doublespeak euphemisms, jargon, emotive content, false implications, meaningless comparisons, and vagueness. In an interactive exercise, learners identify ways to overcome these barriers.
