Discussion Questions: 27 September Virtual Seminar

  1. Is teaching students how to listen worth the time it requires? Why should we do this?
  2. If we emphasize the process of listening, what is the role of checking for comprehension? Is that not important?
  3. Can we get students to monitor how they listen on their own?
  4. How can we use transcripts and captions to help students learn how to listen?
  5. How might we be able to adapt listening activities in the textbook in order to make them more metacognitive in orientation?
