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.

If you are trying to meet the CO state ELL requirements for re-licensure this class is great! It combines topics you may be familiar with but pulls out the new idea of how listening is so important and a critical skill that can be improved by the educator and students as a two way street. There is much to be gained by taking this course beside just the ELL requirements. It is also concise and to the point with practical applications. I am very glad I selected this course.
Jeanelle Colling
This class was wonderful! Even if you realize that you use many of the strategies in the book, you learn how to teach them with listening in mind, to be a more effective teacher of listening. The assignments help you reflect on practice and develop plans and notes to use and apply immediately!
