Teaching Negotiation Skills in the Classroom

See also

Children are never too young to learn the art of negotiating. We all need to be able to negotiate to get what we want in life. When planning out a lesson on negotiating you first can teach the skill of Active Listening. Active Listening means learning to stay quiet as you are listening and then to ask meaningful questions based on what you have heard. For more information on specific active listening lessons visit: http://www.colorado.edu/conflict/peace/treatment/activel.htm
You can also show your class clips from the History Channel show Pawn Stars which can be found on You Tube at sites such as: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QkC2PA0YAo
Now that your class understands what negotiating is you can bring in some items from around your house and have some play the role of sellers and some play the role of buyers. If you have some extra money you could bring in some new toys and have everyone negotiate until everyone has a present to take home.
