A written assignment for listening

This written assignment is a nice choice for right after a discussion of listening or for students to do on their own if you will not have time to cover the listening chapter.

Describe in detail a situation you have experienced in which problems with listening interfered in the communication process. Look over the various listening problems given in the textbook. Which of these reasons do you think interfered with your listening? Why? Now review the textbook’s suggestions for improving your listening skills. Which of these tips would do most to help you improve listening skills in the situation that you described? Why? How might you begin to employ this tip?

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.

What do you think?
