Release Date: 2019-04-18
Genre:

Teaching Children to Listen in Primary Schools contains a wealth of interventions to improve listening skills across the school. It is perfect for classrooms where poor listening is an increasing barrier to teaching as the resultant distractible behaviour can make it difficult for the rest of the class to pay attention. Specialist speech and language therapists Liz Spooner and Jacqui Woodcock present activities to develop children's key listening skills, as well as a rating scale to assess pupils on each of the four rules of good listening - looking at the person who is talking; sitting still; staying quiet; and listening to all the words. They offer advice on using these findings to inform individual education plans. Liz and Jacqui also look at why listening is important and offer 40 games to encourage children to become good listeners. This practical guide not only contains photocopiable resources, assessment and teaching suggestions with clear and concise explanations from professionals who directly work with children on a daily basis, but it also pinpoints the behaviours that children need to learn in order to be good listeners. Teaching Children to Listen in Primary Schools is an invaluable resource for practically developing children's listening skills.For activities aimed specifically at Early Years children, check out Teaching Children to Listen in the Early Years.

Early Years Second Language Education

Author: Sandie Mourão
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134507801
Release Date: 2014-11-20
Genre: Education

The age for early language learning has dropped dramatically in the past decade to include children under 6 years old, yet very little published research exists to support the implementation of such programmes. Drawing on a synthesis of theory, research and practice, this edited volume makes an innovative contribution to literature concerning language education for very young children. It explores language learning in a wide range of geographical contexts with reference to second and foreign language learning, bilingualism and plurilingualism with children under the age of 6 years old. Chapters present discussion around teacher education, policy-making, international case studies, school and home-based projects, code switching and language use, and methodologies and approaches. Early Years Second Language Education: International perspectives on theory and practice will be essential reading for researchers, academics, teacher trainers, and post-graduate students in the fields of early years education, foreign and second language education, language didactics and teacher education.

Die Macht der Gewohnheit Warum wir tun was wir tun

Author: Charles Duhigg
Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag
ISBN: 9783827070746
Release Date: 2012-09-10
Genre: History

Seit kurzem versuchen Hirnforscher, Verhaltenspsychologen und Soziologen gemeinsam neue Antworten auf eine uralte Frage zu finden: Warum tun wir eigentlich, was wir tun? Was genau prägt unsere Gewohnheiten? Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus der Forschung wie dem Alltag erzählt Charles Duhigg von der Macht der Routine und kommt dem Mechanismus, aber auch den dunklen Seiten der Gewohnheit auf die Spur. Er erklärt, warum einige Menschen es schaffen, über Nacht mit dem Rauchen aufzuhören (und andere nicht), weshalb das Geheimnis sportlicher Höchstleistung in antrainierten Automatismen liegt und wie sich die Anonymen Alkoholiker die Macht der Gewohnheit zunutze machen. Nicht zuletzt schildert er, wie Konzerne Millionen ausgeben, um unsere Angewohnheiten für ihre Zwecke zu manipulieren. Am Ende wird eines klar: Die Macht von Gewohnheiten prägt unser Leben weit mehr, als wir es ahnen.

Talk Box

Release Date: 2012-06-25
Genre: Education

This practical book is based on the influential Thinking Together approach - a special method for developing speaking, listening and thinking skills. It is based on classroom research carried out in schools by the Open University, which has now been integrated into the National Primary Strategy. Included are twelve lesson plans for whole class and small group work. These have been built around specific learning objectives for speaking and listening, with activities related to literacy, numeracy, science and citizenship. At the heart of the lesson plans is the ‘talk box’ - a collection of interesting objects which provide a focus for class discussion. The 'talk box' helps children learn to share information, articulate ideas, reason and solve problems together. In this way, teachers can promote the development of children's language and thinking skills throughout the whole of the Key Stage 1 curriculum.

Die subtile Kunst des darauf Schei ens

Release Date: 2017-05-08
Genre: Self-Help

Scheiß auf positives Denken sagt Mark Manson. Die ungeschönte Perspektive ist ihm lieber. Wenn etwas scheiße ist, dann ist es das eben. Und wenn man etwas nicht kann, dann sollte man dazu stehen. Nicht jeder kann in allem außergewöhnlich sein und das ist gut so. Wenn man seine Grenzen akzeptiert, findet man die Stärke, die man braucht. Denn es gibt so viele Dinge, auf die man im Gegenzug scheißen kann. Man muss nur herausfinden, welche das sind und wie man sie sich richtig am Arsch vorbeigehen lässt. So kann man sich dann auf die eigenen Stärken und die wichtigen Dinge besinnen und hat mehr Zeit, sein Potential gänzlich auszuschöpfen. Die subtile Kunst des darauf Scheißens verbindet unterhaltsame Geschichten und schonungslosen Humor mit hilfreichen Tipps für ein entspannteres und besseres Leben. Damit man seine Energie für sinnvolleres verwendet als für Dinge, die einem egal sein können.

The Sound of Hope

Genre: Family & Relationships

There is more to listening than just hearing. A miraculous process that begins in the womb, learning to communicate is a vital part of expressing oneself and of understanding and interacting with the world. A child’s ability to listen well affects every aspect of his or her life. But for some 1.5 million children in the United States who have normal hearing and intelligence, communication and language are blocked. Words are jumbled and distorted. These children have a hard time following directions and become frustrated in trying to make themselves understood, which often leads to unruly behavior, poor school performance, social isolation, and low self-esteem. Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) affects the brain’s ability to accurately process the sounds of speech, which in turn impedes the ability to communicate. Experts are just beginning to unlock the mystery of this confounding condition. As a result, APD is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. But hope is here. Now veteran speech-language pathologist Lois Kam Heymann offers the first practical guide to help parents dramatically improve the listening and language skills of their children, whether they have a diagnosed auditory processing disorder, slow language development—or simply need practice listening. Inside this reassuring, action-oriented book you’ll find • easy-to-identify milestones to help parents pinpoint challenges that may arise during each stage of their child’s development from birth to age eight • the tools and checklists needed to assist parents in recognizing APD early • tips to distinguish APD from other listening/learning disorders, including ADD, ADHD, LPD, and PDD • methods to encourage a child’s natural listening abilities through books, stories, nursery rhymes, songs, lullabies, toys, and games • home techniques to hone a child’s auditory processing—whether he or she has severe APD limitations or just needs to build listening “muscles” • specific suggestions on how to improve a child’s listening skills outside the home—at school, during after-school activities, even when at a restaurant • an analysis of traditional classroom settings and effective ways parents can advocate for better sound quality • guidelines for finding the right professionals to work with your child With hands-on ways for improving a child’s ability to listen to instructions, process information, and follow directions, parents can turn simple activities into powerful listening lessons in only minutes a day. The bottom line: Learning how to listen in our noisy, complicated world is the key to a happy and engaged child. From the Hardcover edition.
