There have been few options for teachers to really teach listening. There has been no credible evidence in support of listening strategies, and extensive listening is not enough. Recent research from cognitive science and pedagogy indicates that teaching listening with bottom-up approaches is effective, and is easy to do. This workshop will introduce some simple activities you can use on Monday morning to get your students listening better using proven methodology.
