Listening: Its Impact at All Levels on Reading and the Other Language Arts. Revised Edition.
Lundsteen, Sara W.
In an integration of listening research with other areas of language arts, this monograph presents a framework for understanding listening skills and outlines classroom activities that are based on scientific data. Stressing the priority and value of listening instruction, the introduction discusses the need for more attention to listening and calls for greater systemization in instruction. The first chapter suggests two approaches to a definition of listening, while the second chapter defines the term according to the operations of a proficient listener. Chapter three deals with listening comprehension as it relates to instructional objectives and teacher needs. The final two chapters examine criticisms and rationales applicable to both formal and informal listening tests and set standards to assist teachers in reaching specific objectives. The appendixes contain lists of commercially published listening materials and classroom listening materials intended to ssupplement those presented in the text. (MAI)
