Students with hearing loss often struggle with auditory comprehension, memory and recall. Many of my students do poorly with teacher read alouds because they must rely on listening and hearing to understand the passages. This rubric was created to practice listening comprehension skills. It also gives older students a list of things they should be listening for during the read aloud.
Suggested use: I typically read aloud a short story or chapter in a book we've been reading, then complete the rubric at the end of the reading. I've found that students with attention concerns are much more successful when given a task during read aloud stories. Tasks that have been successful for my students: drawing a picture of an event from the story, working on a simple coloring page, manipulating Play doh, and fidget spinners. Students understand that they are expected to be active listeners while working on their activity, or it will be taken away.
All of my files are completely editable for your needs. Each state has different criteria for goal writing and progress monitoring, so I want to make sure my tools are editable for use by all teachers.
