Listen...

Listening, not just hearing but really listening is a skill many students need help with. Some are naturals at it. Others might be bad at it. Truth is many were never taught how to listen effectively.

The listening skill affects success in school, work, and relationships.

But the question is: How many of us teachers explicitly teach listening?

In his recent Kwik Brain Podcast on listening a renowned learning expert Jim Kwik summarized the key to good listening as the ability to listen with more than your ears.

Check out the infographic below to see what that involves.
