During an activity, students engage in and demonstrate the six listening strategies. Students analyze and reflect on the results of these strategies to determine lessons learned. Analysis and reflection can be done individually, in small groups, or during whole-group instruction.
Example activity for practicing and reflecting on the listening strategies
Research on effective and active listening for learning suggests a number of proven strategies that can help maximize the listening experience, especially if the listening strategies match the goals and the type of listening the listener has chosen.
Following are the items you must submit to earn this micro-credential and the criteria by which they will be evaluated. To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1, 3, and 4 and a “Yes” for Part 2.
