Is Anyone Listening?
To remedy the lack of well-planned developmental listening programs and adequate listening instruction in New Zealand schools, the New Zealand Council for Educational Research has produced this research-based teacher guide. The following materials are included: objectives for the reading program, including seven characteristics of a good listener; base lines for assessing levels of competence and for detecting undesirable listening habits, as well as for assessing the teacher's own speaking skills; obtaining an optimal classroom listening environment; detecting possible medical problems interfering with hearing; developing a systematic, regular, and varied listening program; direct versus integrated approaches to listening instruction; and the evaluation of listening, including 20 characteristics of the bad listener. References include a list of books containing listening activities, overviews of the field, the teaching of listening, testing, research, and standards. (DF)
