Experiential Instruction of Listening for College Students: Theoretical and Practical Approaches to Teaching Listening. Evaluating Listening Texts.
Eight college listening texts were selected and evaluated by the following criteria: organization, supporting material, and readability. Text organization was assessed by preface material, table of contents, index, and references. Text supporting material was evaluated by the use of hard data, soft data, visual aids, and bibliographies. Text readability was judged by transitions, tone, visual structure, and reading level. Worksheets were developed for each of the criteria, and numerical scores were assigned to each of the texts evaluated. (Worksheets for evaluating the texts, summaries of data, and a rank order of the eight texts are included.) (Author)
