Active Listening is the key to the success of ANY classroom in order for all students' voices to be heard and respected.
However, it's a skill most teachers never teach intentionally, and students don't know how to use unless taught explicitly.
In this 4 page document, you will find a daily Active Listening Rubric students can use to daily self-assess themselves, and also a week end reflection where they have to articulate their journey toward becoming an effective Active Listener.
These activities TRANSFORMED my class from an overly chatty, non-aware class to a group of individuals who have begun a self-reflective journey toward effective active listening.
I only put out products that I have personally had great success with. Worth checking out if you struggle with students and side-conversations, checking out, interrupting, blurting, etc.
