Listening skills and observations must be modeled and taught.
Students should note when the teacher pauses, repeats a phrase, writes something on the board/smartboard or dry erase board, spells a word, or says, “This is important.”
List these prompts and then model them so students know when to write information down. Practice having students listen for the number of times these strategies are used in a short lecture.
