Listen Up! Speaking Matters (DVD)
Effective verbal communication is, arguably, the most important of the language arts, yet few schools explicitly help students develop the essential skills of listening and speaking. Listen Up! Speaking Matters presents a straightforward and engaging approach to teaching the following core skills:
- Building and presenting a speech
- Collaborative discussion
- Adapting speech to different audiences
- Media literacy
- Using multimedia effectively
Join Erik Palmer – education consultant and author of Well-Spoken: Teaching Speaking to All Students (2011), Digitally Speaking: How to Improve Student Presentations with Technology (2012) and Teaching the Core Skills of Listening and Speaking (2014) – as he visits an elementary school, a middle school and a high school where educators see the results of their emphasis on listening and speaking.
As Palmer meets with staff, observes elementary school presentations, teaches an engaging middle school lesson and attends innovative high school classes, you will see how teachers can help students practise the core skills of listening and speaking in any classroom. Plus – contrary to the popular belief that students dread public speaking – you will witness the confidence, satisfaction and joy that they experience when they learn to speak well.
Featuring Erik Palmer’s unique blend of practical wisdom, proven pedagogy and humour, Listen Up! Speaking Matters shows teachers how to improve students’ communication skills for success in school and beyond.
