Effective listening skills are essential for successful social interaction at home, at school, and in the community. Guided Listening illustrates how teachers can champion purposeful listening and help students better understand their language strengths and needs. It offers a practical framework that shows the value of recording and sharing the ideas of others; provides opportunities to identify the norms and conventions associated with oral language; and frees students to listen more attentively, organize their responses, and watch for the subtle cues that are an important part of listening. The strategies in this practical book involve students in: analyzing and synthesizing information; making inferences and predictions while listening; transferring these skills to their independent reading and learning. Tools that complement the strategies include reproducible graphic organizers, rubrics, forms for recording student progress, and numerous worksheets. Suggestions for choosing guided listening texts and a comprehensive approach to assessment complete this valuable resource.
