Are you listening??

Julian Treasure offers 5 ways to improve our listening.

We, as educators, need to listen more and talk less. I experienced this on the first week of school. The teacher was talking and talking and the students were trying to ask questions to get a better understanding of the information, but the teacher had a pace and didn't listen. I watched the student shut down and not attempt to ask anything further. We corrected that at the end of the instructional session, but the damage was already done. We now have repair work to do that should never have been needed, if we had just listened in the first place.
