About This Chapter
1. Teaching Speaking Skills: Strategies & Methods
In the push to teach students reading and writing, it's easy to forget about speaking! This lesson gives you ideas for teaching speaking skills, including explaining how spoken language works and what you can do to support it.
2. Evidence-Based Instruction for Listening & Speaking
The objective of this lesson is to cover research-based speaking and listening strategies that will help teachers of English Language Arts build these skills for a variety of social and academic purposes.
3. Adapting Communication for Various Situations
Everyone has strengths and weaknesses when it comes to communicating. In this lesson, we'll explore some types of communication styles and learn some ways that they can be altered and adapted to fit the situation.
4. Evaluating Yourself as a Speaker: Goals & Methods
The last word of a speech does not completely end it for the speaker. A speaker must take time to evaluate a speech to determine whether the expected goals were accomplished. This lesson will explore several methods to evaluate yourself as a speaker.
5. Types of Listening: Pseudo-, Appreciative, Empathetic, Comprehensive & Critical
Although people communicate by sending a message to a receiver, the message is received in different ways depending on the information. Different types of listening styles help us effectively understand messages we receive.
6. Critical Listening & Thinking: Evaluating Others' Speeches
Critical listening skills go far beyond just hearing a speaker's message. They involve analyzing the information in a speech and making important decisions about truth, authenticity and relevance. Learn about critical listening and thinking skills in this lesson.
