Learning to Listen, Listening to Learn: Building Essential Skills in Young Children
Item #: 2008
# of Pages:160
From the very beginning of a child's life, effective listening includes becoming aware, focusing, selecting cues from the environment, and filtering out distractions. And in the preschool years, children are ready to learn a lot more about becoming good listeners. Yet very few teachers have had specific preparation for actually teaching children how to listen. Learning to Listen, Listening to Learn provides clear, research-based guidance to help teachers set young children's listening behaviors on the right path, as well as reassess their own listening skills.
"A masterful fusing of research and practice that will be of interest to experienced and beginning teachers both. Readers will enjoy Jalongo’s clear writing, empathetic connection with children, and holistic view of listening."
