Start with Listening

Listening is difficult because it requires a focused mind.  It’s challenging to discipline our thinking minds, especially for children just starting school.

Why not start at the beginning with listening practice?

A newly posted seminar plan “Breezing Up” includes a “Brief Academic Conversation” as the pre-content step so that participants take just a few minutes to practice listening.

Our new Seminar Plan additions, “brief academic conversations,” target discrete speaking and listening skills.  In this way, teachers and students take smart steps in moving toward whole class dialogue.
