In this weekly blog post, the Curriculum team will highlight Just One Resource from our NGPF collection that maybe doesn't get the attention it deserves. Use it this week or bookmark it for later. 

[The Resource] SOFT SKILLS: Accepting Criticism

The Gist: Students roleplay realistic high school and workplace scenarios in order to practice the soft skill Accepting Criticism. 

The Best Parts:

  • Students get to practice their "accepting criticism" skills through 6 total scenarios with a partner. (Improv skills are a bonus!)
  • The 6 scenarios offer a variety of different situations that students may face in their lives - 2 occur during high school and 4 happen on the job
  • Students come away with a deeper understanding of why this soft skill may be important for school, work, and life in general
