Description

This title outlines an approach created by the authors that has already been successfully used to improve the listening skills of over 600 children. Listening isn't a language problem, it's about being able to concentrate. And listening is at the heart of learning: poor listening prevents children from learning. Children, themselves, generally don't understand what good listening is, so there is little point in teachers saying: Listen to me. This book outlines an approach created by the authors that has already been successfully used to improve the listening skills of over 600 children. This in turn has had positive effects on both behaviour and learning. The book explains how listening develops and how to teach good listening. It provides an extensive range of activities to teach each of the four rules of good listening, and includes an easy-to-use assessment tool to measure progress and support target setting. The book also offers strategies that will enable children to listen well in all learning situations so that teachers can generalise good listening throughout school. Online and photocopiable resources to support activities are included.
