The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students | listening | Scoop.it

"Mid-year or more frequently, I ask students to complete an evaluation form. I craft the questions carefully so simple answers are hard to write. Instead, I try to create specific, complex questions that cover the material, the classroom activities and the students—peers and the individual.

Many teachers shake their heads and avoid these exercises. They scoff that students would actually take the forms seriously or that the students will say anything useful. But I find the nature of the questions often elicits a straight answer—short, but helpful."

This is a great blog post on feedback and the importance of asking and listening to our students.

Darleana McHenry's curator insight, January 6, 2014 12:07 PM

Would you allow your students to evaluate you as a teacher? I think that you would learn a lot. 

macksayers's curator insight, January 6, 2014 1:07 PM

Listening to our students through asking thoughtful questions and providing descriptive feedback to their peer and self assessments.

Tulsa audiologist creates game to help kids' listening skills

Tulsa audiologist creates game to help kids' listening skills | listening | Scoop.it
A line table and shelf of toys at Jacque Scholl's Tulsa audiology office is filled with toys, games and books aimed at helping kids to develop listening skills, even though few are actually designed for that purpose.

“A lot of kids just never learn how to listen,” Scholl said. “Today kids are so glued to iPads and video games, and we are so willing to just give it to them.”

When she adopted her hearing-impaired daughter, Jayde, from China a year ago, Scholl learned there is a market out there for games and toys to help develop listening skills.

Just last week a case of 1,000 copies of a new game developed by Scholl arrived at her midtown office. The game, called Crazy Pants, is hopefully the first in a new line of toys under her Chatterbox Toys label.

Scholl said she started developing the game in April, taking what she knows about working with children and designing a game around it.

The game features a handful of brightly colored boards with articles of clothing, and parents and kids can work on activities such as matching and sequencing.

Scholl works with hundreds of kids every year, some with significant physical hearing problems and other children who seem delayed in developing hearing and speech as they pass their toddler years.
