Listen Hear!: 25 Effective Listening Comprehension Strategies
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.
