“Confident Communicators” is a great DiF Mini for any kid - whether we love public speaking or fear it. We play lots of games that get kids talking and then move on to activities like “Ruler of the Universe.” It starts with a simple question: “if you ruled the universe, what would be the best rule for the whole world to follow?” With your rule in hand you get a chance to step into the imaginary castle, present your rule to your subjects, and then try to defend the castle against their vollied counterpoints. This one’s a fun one because we learn how to attack and defend positions while creating a non-threatening environment where we ensure all voices are heard. We, of course, work on serious argumentation skills, but we also develop perspective-taking, logic, and critical reasoning.
