Social Skills: Tact
Tact requires putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and seeing things from his or her perspective. This printable handout works directly on the ability to understand others’ points of view, to evaluate statements’ properties of offensiveness, bragging, inappropriateness, over-generalization and prejudice. Students are presented with a list of 21 statements to use for discussion regarding the tactless elements of each, and, more specifically, how each statement could make another person feel. Includes an answer key.
