Listening Journals: Anthony teacher

Listening Journals: Anthony teacher | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Listening Journals are a project/concept I have been toying with for the past few years and have been putting into practice into all my listening classes. I have presented the idea to colleagues in numerous settings and the ideas have been well received.

The basic premise is that students need both extensive and intensive listening practice. Extensive listening practice involves students listening to interesting, enjoyable and meaningful listening texts at or around their level. Intensive listening practice, in terms of listening journals, is exploiting these texts to practice important bottom-up listening skills (e.g. decoding). The journals in their various permutations set students on weekly or daily listening tasks that involve both aspects of listening while giving them a space for metacognitive reflection.

Examples of how to implement this with learners, and links for listening practice

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, September 16, 2015 10:34 PM

This is a great idea to get students listening to English outside of class!  The possibilities are endless and having students share their journal entries in small groups would be a great way to get classmates to listen to other genres (book, news article, podcast, etc.).  This article includes several sites for students to use, some of them quite familiar and loved.

The word lists can be found elsewhere but the highlighter tools and gap-fill maker are unique tools from Nottingham.

Nice set of tools and activities for English for Academic Purposes.

10 Free Resources For Learning Nearly Any Language | The Everyday Language Learner | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Aaron G Myers says: "I would like to share ten free resources that I have used or newly discovered that will help you learn nearly any language that you  wish to learn.  I don’t see any of these as a silver bullet or as capable in and of themselves in taking you to fluency in your target language.  I don’t really believe in silver bullets!  They can all be a part of building an overall personal language learning program that will lead to success."

Welcome to Lit2Go ETC

Welcome to Lit2Go ETC | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
Welcome
"Lit2Go is a free online collection of stories and poems in Mp3 (audiobook) format. An abstract, citation, playing time, and word count are given for each of the passages. Many of the passages also have a related reading strategy identified. Each reading passage can also be downloaded as a PDF and printed for use as a read-along or as supplemental reading material for your classroom."

Shona Whyte:
Mostly American out-of-copyright classics aimed at native-speakers, but well put together for teachers (transcript, reading level, word count) so usable for intermediate-plus teen or adult learners.
