Enroll in Professional Communications with Dolphin STEM Academy
This one-semester course is intended as a practical, hands-on guide to help you familiarize with
the communication skills required in a profession. This course has 13 lessons organized into
three units, plus three Unit Activities. Each lesson contains one or more Lesson Activities.
This course covers the communication overview including the communication process,
elements of effective communication, and barriers to communication. This course familiarizes
you with reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills needed for general communication.
Professional Communications also familiarizes you with communication skills required in
business organizations. These skills equip you with the ability to appear for job interviews,
participate in group discussions, and solve workplace problems. You also learn about the use of
technology in communication.
You will submit the Unit Activity documents to your teacher, and you will grade your work on the
Lesson Activities by comparing them with the given sample responses. The Unit Activities

this course. There are other assessment components, namely the mastery test questions that
feature along with the lesson; the pre- and post-test questions that come at the beginning and
end of the unit respectively; and an end-of-semester test. All of these tests are a combination of
simple multiple-choice questions and technology enhanced (TE) questions.
