Listening to Narratives (For example: Listening to a boring story from your teacher)  2. Listening for Specific Information and Data (For example: Listening to a boring story from your teacher with a lot of facts)  3. Listening in Conversational Contexts (For example: Listening to a boring story from your teacher and having to respond to your teacher)  4. Listening to Extended Discourse (For example: Listening to a boring story from your teacher, with a lot of facts, for a really long time…)

  17. 17. What is Listening?
  18. 18.  How would you define…Listening? What is the difference between…Listening…and…Hearing? Is all…Listening…the same or is there a difference? How can you improve your…Listening?
  19. 19.  Listening is: ◦ Skill  It is not something natural, it is something that you develop over time.  You can actually “hear” while in the womb, but listening probably develops at around 1-3 years of age. ◦ Active Process  Hearing – That is receiving sound signals  Recognizing – Acknowledging that there is meaning  Evaluating – Understanding, Interpreting, Remembering, Responding… blah..blah..blah…
  20. 20.  Hearing is: ◦ Natural  If you’re born with good ears, you can hear. ◦ Passive  You can’t close your ears like you can close your eyes. ◦ Physical process  Listening is more of a mental process because it needs parts of your brain.  Hearing just needs your ears, you can even hear something when your brain is asleep.
  21. 21.  There are different ways of identifying types of listening. I say there’s just four types: ◦ 1. Inactive Listening  The message is received, recognized, and ignored. ◦ 2. Selective Listening  The message is received, recognized, but only part of it is evaluated…the rest you ignore. ◦ 3. Active Listening  The message is received, recognized, and it is completely evaluated…you don’t ignore anything. ◦ 4. Reflective Listening  The message is received, recognized, and completely evaluated but you also verify that it has been evaluated correctly…you check to make sure you didn’t miss anything.
  22. 22.  Yes you can!  Listening is a skill remember…you can always improve a skill How can you improve Listening? ◦ Warming up your Brain (Pre Listening activities) ◦ Focusing on the message (At first, you should try to be an active listener, then be selective) ◦ Practice makes perfect (A lot of listening activities help your brain recognize the message better, which helps in evaluation)
  23. 23.  Using Strategies when Listening helps a lot ◦ In this Class:  We will learn strategies to better Recognize and Evaluate messages.  We will learn different strategies for different listening contexts.  Not all messages are the same. ◦ So what are the different contexts of messages?
  24. 24.  There 4 main contexts for Listening: ◦ Narrative: Remember the boring story ◦ Expository: That’s when you listen for facts ◦ Interactive: That’s listening in conversation, it’s live and dynamic. ◦ Extended Discourse: That’s listening for a really long time.
  25. 25.  Next Week: ◦ We will Discuss some strategies for listening to Narratives. ◦ Then we will do some activities in class to practice those strategies. ◦ Then you will practice some more. ◦ Then you will show me what you can do at home with the assignment.
