Listening

The ability to listen and understand information.

 

Initially, it is about the students being able to hear and recall simple instructions. They also develop the ability to record key pieces of information.

As they get more skilled, the focus turns to being able to analyse what they are hearing and the purpose of what is being shared. They develop the ability to understand the speaker in greater depth. This includes understanding the use of tone, bias, themes and implications.

Ultimately, by the time they leave school students should be able to listen, capture key information and also to evaluate the speaker and their goals.
