Listening: Upper Elementary Grades.
Anderson, Lorena
The importance of a good listening program in the upper-elementary grades was emphasized. Perhaps the biggest listening problem with these students, the author said, is to teach them to read as they listen. Suggestions were offered as to how to build listening skills. The separate communicative skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing need to be taught, but it should be recognized that development in one skill reinforces another and that communications skills should be taught by discovery, practice, evaluation, and more practice. Examples of creative listening activities were also given. (NH)
