Generating Topics - Parent 2
Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning the importance of generating topics when talking with someone.
Definition: Topics are subjects that we discuss with others when we are having a conversation.The topics can be based on our own interests and ideas or on those offered by a conversation partner during an exchange.
We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! Here a just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:
- Why do we need to vary the topics that we discuss?
- What would happen if we discussed the same topics repeatedly?
- How do you respond to a person who says the same thing or discusses the same topic over and over again?
- Why should we try to listen to people who are talking about unfamiliar topics with us?
Make a list of five topics you are unfamiliar with that others in your family like to talk about.
