Say What? 5 Ways to Get Students to Listen

Say What? 5 Ways to Get Students to Listen | TEFL with YLs | Scoop.it

Ah, listening, the neglected literacy skill. I know when I was a high school English teacher this was not necessarily a primary focus; I was too busy honing the more measurable literacy skills -- reading, writing, and speaking.

 

But when we think about career and college readiness, listening skills are just as important. This is evidenced by the listening standards found in the Common Core and also the integral role listening plays in collaboration andcommunication, two of the four Cs of 21st century learning.

 

So how do we help kids become better listeners?

Sshh, sshh! It's story time… : Pre-primary | TEFL with YLs | Scoop.it

"Stories play a central role in our young children's world, so much so that recent studies show that children as young as three are capable of stepping into the minds of their favourite storybook characters. That is why stories are so essential to the Infant English class. Claire Medwell has some tips for getting the most out of story time with our very young learners."
