Say What? 5 Ways to Get Students to Listen
- Strategy #1: Say it Once:Repeating ourselves in the classroom will produce lazy listening in our students.
- Strategy #2: Turn and Talk: One way to inspire active listening in your students is to give them a listening task.
- Strategy #3: Student Hand Signals: Asking students to pay full attention and indicating that they will follow this with a non-verbal signal is a wonderful tool for sharpening those listening skills.
- Strategy #4: Pay Attention, Pause, Paraphrase: Children need structured opportunities to restrain themselves from speaking in order to keep their attention on listening, especially when working in groups.
Strategy #5: Creating Questions:If your students are listening to a speech, watching a documentary clip, or hearing a story read aloud, break it up by stopping a few times and having students write a question or two about what they just heard.
Good listeners are both rare and valued. It's important to share this with students, and to also share the fact that people who really listen -- make eye contact, show interest, and restrain from cutting others off in a conversation -- are easy to like and respect.
