This resource sets out techniques and activities to help secondary students improve their listening skills.
Alongside reading, writing and speaking, listening is a vital literacy skill. It is the form of communication that children and adults use the most, but children and young people are rarely taught techniques at school for how to listen well.
This resource will:
- Help teachers understand why it is important for students to have good listening skills
- Build teachers' knowledge about the different types of listening skills, including active listening and asking questions
- Provide teachers with a range of exciting activities designed to teach students active listening techniques, as well as help them practise and improve these key skills
