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.

Jeanine Thorsbakken
Awesome class. Really great ideas that can be used in the classroom. It gives different activities with a list of books that can be used for the skill taught. The book will be a great resource this fall for class. Jeremiah, the instructor, is prompt with emails, grading, and helping anyway he can to support us.
Kelly Bush
This was a wonderful class and Jeremiah was a great instructor as well. It really makes you think about the complexity of listening, and how hard it must be for our students every day. I am excited to take the many strategies I learned back to the classroom!
Barbara Woods
The text is easy to read and gives you titles of books that can be used for each strategy. I gained new insight and strategies that I plan on implementing with my students this year.
