Teaching Listening Skills in the Junior College Reading Program.
Hammond, William T., Jr.
Stating that little has been done to improve listening skills, the author (1) lists some of the various definitions assigned to listening; (2) examines the dichotomy between the listening goals of two- and four-year colleges and the actual time colleges spend in listening instruction; (3) reports on the standard listening practice of note-taking as an ineffective means of improving listening comprehension; and (4) points out the confusion and contradictions surrounding the information on listening. His concluding remark urges recognition of the need for an organized and coordinated program in this area. A reference list is included. (HS)
