Listening and Reading.
Devine, Thomas G.
This paper examines the ways in which reading and listening processes are alike and dissimilar, evaluates some findings by researchers and teachers, and suggests avenues for future study in this area. Although reading and listening make different demands upon the person on the receiving end of the communication, both are concerned with the decoding part of the communication process, and each seems to be a complex of related skills components. In addition, high correlations exist between test scores in reading and listening. Stages in the development of a model language-arts curriculum designed to teach critical thinking by developing listening and reading skills would include the identification and selection of mental processes believed to be most useful and most capable of being approached through language, the translation of these processes into reading and listening skills, and the assembling of a collection of teaching strategies.
