Listening Skills Schoolwide: Activities and Programs.
Devine, Thomas G.
Designed for workshop, teacher inservice, and classroom use, this monograph pulls together theory, research findings, and descriptions of successful classroom practices to improve instruction in listening skills. Chapter 1 discusses the importance of listening instruction, providing general background information on the nature of listening. The next three chapters provide suggestions for teaching (1) accurate listening (using personal involvement to improve attention to detail and summary); (2) purposeful listening (following directions, recognizing the organization of spoken discourse); and (3) critical listening (distinguishing fact from opinion). The final chapter outlines steps for developing a schoolwide program of listening instruction, including information on how teachers may test most effectively for listening success using both standardized and teacher-made instruments. Appendixes contain reproducible exercise pages for class sets and annotated references both for further reading and for additional teaching materials. (HTH)
