Teaching Communication Barriers in Early Education Class (2022)

Brandi Renis

In Early Childhood, emotions can run “high” just due to the fact that we work with young children and families. Often cultural differences, implicit biases, and other issues can occur within communication that we may not know or expect to happen. At times, it is important to deescalate irate or anxiety-filled parents/caregivers and even children. We also body language sends unsaid “signals” to others and analyze how our bodies can “talk” for us without us necessarily knowing it from being in an interview to having a typical conversation.

Here are a few short videos I share with my students:
