Basic Listening Skills.
Illinois Speech and Theatre Association.; Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
Intended to help school districts or classroom teachers develop and implement listening skills programs, this manual begins by stressing the importance of listening instruction and of the preparatory phase of listening readiness. This information is followed by a discussion of teaching assumptions about listening behavior that have been supported through research on listening skills. Listening contexts are then identified as they relate to communication functions (informing, controlling, imagining, feeling, ritualizing) and audience contexts (intrapersonal, interpersonal, grouping). The next section identifies basic listening skills for preschool through grade 12 and indicates whether the skill for the grade level should be introduced, focused, reviewed, or maintained. The final sections provide sample listening activities on becoming informed for preschool, on imagining for grades K-3, on feeling for grades 4-6, on ritualizing for grades 7-9, and on being controlled for grades 10-12. The description of each activity identifies the skills to be emphasized and includes directions for the teaching and assessment of the skills. (HOD)
