Thank you for that wonderful prayer

2. Greetings

Before you take your seat, kindly
check your area and pick up the
pieces on the floor. Also, do not (Students do what is instructed)
forget to look at the person beside

a smile.

Very good! You may not be seated. Thank you Maam!

3. Checking of Attendance
Miss Secretary, do we have any Maam, Im so happy to inform you that we
absentee for today? do not have any absentee for today.

Oh! Thats good to hear! Thank you!

4. Review

Lets have a short recap.

What did you learn yesterday?

Yes Daniel? Maam, yesterday, I have learned that

Communication is a process.

Very good!
How about you Enrique? Maam, Communication is essential to us
especially in achieving our Educational goals.

Very well said Enrique!

Yes Sue? Communication is a two-way process Maam!

Exactly the point!

Today, we are going to discuss about
how to become effective

But before that class, please read the (Students do what is instructed)
objectives for today.

Thank you!
As mentioned in the objectives,
today you are going to learn about
Effective Communication and the
barriers that hinder it.

B. Lesson Proper

1. Motivation

Based on what we discussed yesterday about

the definition of communication, what do
you think is the meaning of Effective

Yes Jerico?
Maam, it has something to do with
understanding the message of the speaker.
Effective communication is sharing and
understanding the meaning between the
person sending the message and the person
receiving it.
Before we proceed, I will let you watch a
video first and I will ask you to answer this
question afterwards.

1. Why is it important to make

communication effective?
( Students will watch a video clip about a
German Coast Guard Trainee)
(After watching the video clip)

Based on the video that you just watched,

what do you think now is the answer to this

Yes Arci?
It is important for us to communicate
effectively to convey and understand the
perceived message. If not, we might encounter
failure in communication such as in video.
Excellent Arci!

As clearly seen in the video, there has been a

misunderstanding between the German coast
guard and the English captain of a ship.
Actually, the video clip that you just watched
is a commercial by a software company
which believes that the most effective way of
communicating is face-to-face
communication. Do you agree? Yes Maam!
Nonetheless, the video also tells us that
failure to communicate may lead to serious
outcomes such as matters of life and death.
That is how important effective
communication is.

2. Activity

To further understand the meaning of

effective communication, lets have first an
activity. Lets divide the class in three
groups. Each group will be given 5 minutes
to come up with a five-minute impromptu
skit about the issues/problems that each one
of us encounters due to the failure in
communication in different contexts.

Group 1- School (Students do what is instructed)

Group 2- Home
Group 3- Church

Note: Each group should pay keen attention

to the presentation of the other groups
because later on, Ill be asking you to give
your feedbacks about what they had and I
also want you to think of the ways on how to
resolve the given problems.
You will be graded according to the given
Audience Impact

TOTAL: 100%

(After the presentation and feedbacks of each


Job well done everyone! Each group was

able to present meaningful and authentic
instances that happen due to a failure in

3. Analysis

Now, I want you to fully understand our

topic through this illustration which we call
as the communication loop.


Sender Receiver


Ill be giving you a minute to analyze the

given illustration and later on, Ill be calling
some of you to share to the class your
insights on how does this illustration affects
effective communication?

(After a minute)

May I hear your insights now?

Yes Maylona? The sender sends the message to the receiver
and the receiver answers back to the sender.

Thats correct!
Can someone please add up to what she said?
Yes Bailey? Maam, as Maylona mentioned, the sender
sends a message to the receiver and the
receiver understand what s/he intended to say,
so s/he answers back to the sender and so on
and so forth. There the effective
communication occurs.
Exactly the point Bailey!

What if, there are barriers or hindrances to

this cycle? What do you think would likely
to happen?

Sender Receiver


Yes Jodi?
Maam, there would be a failure in

Very good!

At any point in the communication process a

barrier can occur. Barriers keep us from
understanding others ideas and thoughts.
Barriers can appear at any point of the
communication loop.

There are two types of barriers- internal and

external. Examples of internal barriers are
fatigue, poor listening skills, attitude toward
the sender or the information, lack of interest
in the message, fear, mistrust, past
experiences, problems at home and
emotions. While external barriers include
instances such as noise, distractions, bad
internet connections, time of day, use of
jargons and the environment. Barriers simply
keep the message from getting through.
When communicating, watch out for the
barriers. Monitor the actions of the receiver.
Watch his/her body language; check to make
sure the message the receiver received is the
one sent- ask questions and listen.

4. Abstraction

Who can give us a short summary of the

important keys that you learned today?

Yes Bea? Effective communication is getting your

message across the receiver. And for us to
achieve it, we should be good communicators.
We should be aware with the possible barriers
that may hinder it so we can avoid failures in
Very well said Bea!

5. Application

In line with Beas answer, Im pretty sure

that you gained a lot of learning in our
todays lesson which are certainly applicable
to your daily living. Anyone who would like
to share some?

Yes Ian? Effective communication requires the sender

and the receiver to fully understand the
intended message and be able to give
meaningful feedbacks. It is not enough to just
communicate. We should EFFECTIVELY
communicate to avoid conflicts and
misunderstanding. And each time we
communicate, we should observe what we do,
how the communication went, what went well
and what could have been better to become
effective communicators.

Very well said Ian!
