Active Listening

Week 37: Product

Products are evidence of learning.  And more importantly, products show that students know and can apply the process.  Once students learn the process to produce one type of product, can they apply the same process to produce a different product?  Inquiring minds want to know… I certainly did!

Week 28: Active Listening


How do you know when students are actively listening? From day one, we have been working on the conversation skills of looking at the speaker, waiting to speak, and building on each other’s talk. Students have learned and have been using the stems for agreeing, disagreeing, and asking for clarification.  Before spring break, I saw active listening beyond the procedural level and seeing the purpose of why it is so important to teach. To see a fruit of your labor is one of those proud moments in a teacher’s life.
