Skills Students Use When Speaking and Listening. ERIC Topical Bibliography and Commentary.
Smith, Carl B., Ed.
Students develop skills from learning to listen and from having someone listen to them. While most educators assume that listening is a matter of choice, not ability, listening is actually something students have to be taught to do well. This topical bibliography and commentary summarizes several research studies which provide insight into skills students use when engaged in speaking and listening activities. The bibliography/commentary also explores the importance of teaching speaking and listening skills and integrating speaking and listening skills into traditionally taught content areas. It concludes that while speaking and listening are essential skills, many other important skills are learned when a student masters the ability to speak and listen, and as students mature, they are expected to achieve a higher level of thinking and listening. It also notes that most research finds that neither listening skills nor speaking skills are being taught in the classroom. Lists 6 Internet resources and 11 references. (NKA)
