Strategies for Developing Children's Listening Skills. Fastback 314.
Jalongo, Mary Renck
Listening is the language skill humans use most, and teaching children to listen better is an essential and long overdue task. Achieving this task demands three things from the adults who work with children: an understanding of the listening process, the implementation of research-based strategies for improving children's listening, and an appreciation for the changes that individuals need to make in themselves, in their homes, and in their schools. This booklet contains the following eight sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Understanding the Listening Process; (3) Variables Affecting Listening Behavior; (4) Critical Listening Skills; (5) Strategies to Improve Children's Listening Skills; (6) Really Listening to Children; (7) Curricular Issues; and (8) Conclusion. Forty-nine references conclude the booklet. (SR)
