Listening and the Pupil.
Ediger, Marlow
To help students develop needed skills in listening, teachers need to (1) encourage improved listening through interesting learning activities, (2) involve students in presenting ideas as well as listening to content, (3) vary kinds of learning experiences, (4) provide direct training in listening skills, (5) recognize differences in students' academic ability and background experience, and (6) create a stimulating environment to promote active listening. In addition to creating discussion or listening centers, audiovisual stations, and oral reading and storytelling centers, teachers can stress the importance of good listening skills by practicing and encouraging good speaking and listening habits in all classroom activities. The methods that teachers choose to promote listening skills depend on their objectives, which can focus on student skills, such as recalling main ideas, or on affective experiences, such as developing respect for other students.
