About the Course

Are you listening? Did you hear what I said? If you are constantly asking your student these questions, this is the course for you! There is a difference between the physical aspect of hearing and comprehension-focused aspect of listening. We can train students to listen and give them strategies to improve their listening comprehension. This class will be a book study of the book Listen Hear!: 25 Effective Listening Comprehension Strategies by Michael Opitz and Matthew Zbaracki. Many literacy curricula lack the focus on speaking and listening that is addressed in standards. This book is designed to help educators easily integrate listening comprehension into whatever curriculum your school uses. The best part is that many of the strategies require small changes in what you already do.

Daniel Fisher
Great class which showed how to engage students in lessons which will help improve their listening skills. It is predominantly for K-6th, but there are activities and extensions which can be applied to higher grades and which can help adults as well.
Elizabeth Gormish
I didn't even know how much I didn't know about listening. Practical ideas for classroom.
Heather O'Brien
Great class! Concepts help with students, but also colleagues, life partners, your own children, etc. Listening is a skill that can be honed.
