Creative Listening: A Technique to Improve Inter-Personal Communication.
Myers, R. E.; Cawley, Peter
In "creative listening" sessions, participants alternately present their ideas (for fixed periods of time) and listen silently to the other participants. This paper examines the value of this method as an aid to problem solving and offers suggestions for teachers serving as mediators and participants in creative listening sessions. It describes how teachers mediated creative listening sessions that helped to resolve racial and religious differences between two groups of students at an elementary/secondary school, and how a teacher participated in a creative listening session to help a 12-year-old boy solve his school-related problems.
