by Maggie Johnson and Carolyn Player

Children with attention problems, poor thinking skills, avoidance tactics, over-reliance on adults and low self-esteem present real problems.

Why don’t these children ask for help or seek clarification?

Active Listening for Active Learning is a resource for teachers with pupils who are too nervous or inexperienced to ask questions; those with language difficulties who nod vacantly when asked if they understand; those who insist they are right and see only one point of view; those who lack self-help and questioning strategies and those who cannot distinguish facts from guessing or opinion.

Both whole-class and individual strategies are provided to support these children at the different stages of their journey towards becoming effective listeners and confident communicators, with a wealth of photocopiable resources, detailed language activities and assessment procedures.

 

One of the authors (Carolyn Player) gave a short presentation of Active Listening for Active Learning at Therapy Live in London. This will give you a good overall understanding of the resource http://youtu.be/BmHj_T-motg

  • Active Listening for Active Learning is an essential resource for all teachers who recognise children who are too nervous or inexperienced to ask questions; those with language difficulties who nod vacantly when asked if they understand; those who insist they are right and see only one point of view; those who lack self-help and questioning strategies and those who cannot distinguish facts from guessing or opinion.

    Developed primarily for 4-12 year-olds by experienced school-based speech and language therapists Maggie Johnson and Carolyn Player, the principles apply to all age-groups. Many of the activities can be introduced in preschool settings, adapted for older students or used with teenagers with special needs.
