Implementation of Creative Listening Strategies in the Classroom.
Jaben, Twila H.
Arguing that listening is a skill that should be taught systematically in the schools, this paper presents a rationale and strategies for implementing listening instruction in the classroom. The paper first contrasts convergent and divergent thinking, noting that creativity and problem solving are in this latter mode. Next, it examines definitions of creativity and listening. It then describes how to implement listening instruction, and how to create the appropriate environment for teaching the following listening skills: prelistening strategies, listening strategies, listening for verbal and nonverbal cues, and listening for main and supporting ideas and learning to ignore irrelevant information. The paper concludes with six detailed creative listening activities. (HOD)
