Description

Email, cell phones, Facebook, texts, letters ... even good old-fashioned face-to-face conversation. Teens today have all kinds of choices when it comes to communication. But did you know that there are unwritten rules that go with every form of communication? Sending a text to a friend, a letter to a future employer, and a thank-you note to your aunt and uncle all come with very different rules. Figuring out how to communicate effectively will affect every part of your life. In this book, you'll discover: * how to communicate during a job interview. * when it's okay to text--and when it's not. * how to write cover letters, thank-you notes, and more. * how to use communication skills to resolve conflicts. * why it's important to choose your words carefully, especially when you're upset. Supplemented with articles and information from USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, Communication Smarts delivers solid advice and firsthand stories of real teens facing many of the same types of situations you are. Ready to wise up on communication? Read on!
