Everything you need to teach and assess listening skills including a graphic organizer, survey, activity, assessment, and active listening checklist! After completing this unit, you will have a better idea of which students need additional help in building their listening skills.
INCLUDED WITH YOUR PURCHASE:
Graphic Organizer- Verbal and Nonverbal Signals: Students are taught the difference between verbal and nonverbal signals and how noticing those signals can help with their listening skills. The double bubble map includes four verbal signals and four nonverbal signals. A completed map is provided for use as a teacher's guide.
Listening Skills Survey: The survey gives students a chance to take a look at their strengths and weaknesses when it comes to listening. After taking the survey, the students complete a short reflection in which they determine steps they can take to improve their listening skills.
Listening Skills Activity: The listening skills activity is composed of two passages to be read aloud to the class. After listening to each passage, students answer questions based on the reading.
Listening Skills Assessment: The listening skills assessment is set up just like the listening activity. Students will listen to two passages read aloud and answer questions after each passage. Ideally, after completing the unit activities and assessment, it will be clear as to which students need additional support in building their listening skills.
Active Listening Checklist: Including an active listening checklist in a visible location in the classroom will help to reinforce listening skills on a daily basis. The goal is for students to internalize the checklist and automatically monitor their own behavior when it's time to actively listen.
