International Journal of Education and Literacy Studies, v8 n1 p142-151 Jan 2020
The importance of this study is to contribute to the development of curriculums and materials to be prepared for Turkish course in order to serve the needs of the era by creating a critical listening attainment list from the philosophy of the national curriculum and from the education programs of countries which are considered successful internationally. In the literature, there have been very few studies on critical listening skills. In addition, in the educational programs of the countries, there is a lack of achievements in listening skills, especially in critical listening skills. Besides, there is no mention of exams that measure critical listening skills. It is stated in the literature that reading and listening skills are understanding-based skills that serve the same purpose. Therefore, in this study, the attainments of the countries towards reading skills were examined and adapted to listening skills. A draft form was created on the basis of opinions of the experts in the field and a critical listening attainment list was created. It is believed that the "Critical Listening Attainment Framework", which was created with the aim of improving students' critical listening skills, will contribute to the field of education.
