Although I taught American History and American Government for many years, I always started my school year in the first few days by demonstrating the importance of listening. It really doesn't matter what subject you teach because your students must use it a great deal. This PowerPoint will also give your students and you an idea why people struggle to listen. I know it changed my teaching methods greatly when I did a grad school paper on the subject. Who among us has not had to repeat an assignment etc. too many times, and now you will know why!
