Introduction

Unit 2: Communications and values Contents: Introduction Methods Communication comparison Transmission of communication Introduction: For this piece of coursework I had to do two interactions; one with a group of people and the second on a one on one basis.

The first interaction I did was a group activity where everyone involved had to move the ball around cones which were laid out on the floor. At each side there was tape markings which the football was not allowed to pass over. The winner received a sticker on their progress chart. My second interaction was a one on one activity with *Stuart. We passed a football between each other and count how many times we managed to do this. In the first interaction I had to make sure that everyone could hear and understand me. I had to be certain that I used terms that 3 - 5 year olds could understand. I also had to demonstrate what I wanted them to do and use a lot of non-verbal communication. ...read more.

During My interactions I had to communicate verbally and non-verbally. In my first interaction, the main source of communication I used was verbal. I had to describe and explain the activities to the children. I also had to communicate non-verbally. I had to physically demonstrate the tasks which I wanted them to do and use non-verbal actions to further enhance their understanding of what I wanted them to do. ...read more.

Conclusion

This care value is also one to stop the child from feeling discriminated against. It is important for the children to feel accepted and not discriminated against for them to be happy and to enjoy the activities that they are to be partaking in. * Keep the details of the children and parents, including bank details private. This is to protect the data of the clients and keep it confidential. By law you have to keep people details confidential. It is important to do so because it may cause damage or embarrassment to the individual. If someone's medical history is shared then they may feel embarrassed and if someone bank details or contact details they may face unnecessary harassment or loss. * Talk to and help the children as much as it is necessary. This care values is to ensure that effective communication is provided. * Make sure that you know where all the children are all of the time.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This is a nice clear and concise essay. It looks at the use of communication in two different activities. It is at fairly basic descriptive level and lacks a little depth in places.

This could be greatly enhanced by trying to justify why communication skills were used in a particular way. This would raise the level of the writing and help to reach higher grades.
