Listen up! Listening Strategies for Interpretative Tasks

My students constantly reported struggling with listening tasks; this has become the Krytonite in our language program. No matter how many times students would hear a conversation or audio, it was very challenging for them to comprehend. So I decided to approach listening differently in my class.

Check out the video for more details. Notes on the strategy have been included below.

Who am I?

I am currently a Spanish Teacher in Chicago, IL. I have 16 years of cumulative experience as an International Baccalaureate middle school teacher, high school teacher, and adjunct instructor. I hold a Master’s in Latin American Literature and Cultures coupled with a Master’s in Educational Leadership. These dual degrees have afforded me a vantage point from both ends of the educational spectrum: instruction and evaluation.  I have been sharing my unique perspective on pedagogy and language acquisition for over ten years at national, regional and state conferences. I am also an accomplished author! I have authored several compelling comprehensible novels that allow students to solidify their language skills while experiencing a wide range of different cultures. Check out my resources below. Thanks for stopping by!
