Learning Strategy Instruction in the Foreign Language Classroom: Listening.
Chamot, Anna Uhl; And Others
This resource guide is designed to provide foreign language teachers with suggestions for helping students learn how to become better language learners. The four chapters of the guide for teaching listening skills are as follows: (1) Teaching Learning Strategies (e.g., rationale for teaching, types, useful strategies, guidelines, instructional sequence, and specific learning strategies such as directed attention, self-monitoring, repetition, note-taking, inferencing, and translation); (2) Learning to Listen (e.g., what listening comprehension is, guidelines for listening instruction, and how to begin); (3) Lessons Plans for Listening Strategy Instruction (e.g., preparing discussions, initial strategy instruction, practice, additional listening tips, and real world listening); and (4) An Integrated Strategy Approach to Language Teaching (dialogues and narratives, and cultural points). An appendix provides guidelines for developing student worksheets for listening strategy practice. Sixteen exhibits and worksheets are included that cover such areas as what is involved in listening, examples of listening situations where selective attention is useful, listening comprehension exercises, a map of South America, and questioning techniques. Examples are in Spanish. Contains 13 references. (LB)
