25 Have students participate in the Trust Walk. Divide the class into pairs. Once the activity begins, instruct students that one member of the pair will be mute and the other blind. Use a blindfold on one member of the pair. In the activity, the non-speaking partner will lead the blind partner around the school. It is preferred that the teacher lead the entire class in a line of pairs. The blind student should put his/her hands the shoulder of the mute partner who is doing the leading. The teacher will lead the group around the school, going over obstacles, in and out of the school, etc. The leading (mute) student cannot speak, and must use non-verbal behavior to communicate directions to his/her partner. On the way back to the classroom, partners should switch roles.
