Increasing Listening Abilities of Children: A Guide for Teachers.
Dorsey, Mary E.
In May of 1969, the Broward County Board of Public Instruction (Migrant Education Center) made available this guide to enable teachers to increase listening abilities of elementary school students. Although research studies show that listening can and should be taught, it is pointed out that listening instruction for most children is an incidental affair. Therefore, this document explores the need for listening instruction and notes that schools are reluctant to teach listening due to the problems in measuring and evaluating listening. The author discusses (1) the listening environment, (2) stages in listening development, (3) when to teach listening, and (4) how to teach listening skills. Ideas, activities, and exercises in listening are presented to offer teachers many types of experiences in listening which can be a part of a regular class schedule, group projects, and units of work. Questions are provided to guide the teacher in evaluating the listening growth of students. A bibliography is included. (AN)
