Listening and Reading in the Elementary School.
Ediger, Marlow
Presenting many listening activities, this paper discusses reading and listening development in elementary school. It lists five pointers to stress in developing pupils who listen well and gives a set of criteria to provide a framework to use in evaluating pupil achievement in listening. The paper lists six items teacher assistants should listen for when participating in a discussion with a pupil. It then offers five pointers each to emphasize in writing questionnaires, making introductions, and participating in a dramatic activity. The paper considers how answering questions raised by others leads to critical thinking and critical listening. It outlines the three evolutionary layers into which the brain is divided. Discussing listening to lectures and explanations, listening to musical recordings, and responding to sounds in the environment, the paper presents a list of five recommendations for each area. It recommends involving pupils in curriculum development. The paper describes four classroom learning centers that may assist pupils to develop independent, responsible behavior. (SC)
