Students must be good listeners in order to learn. That means that just showing up to class isn't enough, they need to be able to retain what is said and respond. That is why good listening skills are so important. Today we want to discuss the importance of good listening skills and how you can help your child improve in this area.

Good Listening Skills Aren't Just Important, They Are Necessary

Listening is imperative for any activity, not just academic tasks but also for daily activities. A lack of good listening skills can lead to all sorts of problems because it is through listening that we are able to follow directions, understand spoken information, and perceive certain aspects that are not necessarily seen. Hearing is not the same as listening. Students can hear the lesson and be physically present when the instructions or information is given, but it takes a lot more thinking and concentration to actually listen to the information and process it correctly.

Students That Demonstrate Good Listening Skills Are Much More Efficient Learners

When students actively listen they are able to respond to the information that is shared. This does not necessarily mean that the response will be verbal every time. What it means is that a student that listens doesn't just let the information pass from one ear and out the other. On the contrary, he/she retains it and is able to process such information into a thought, idea, or opinion.  When students practice good listening skills they are able to mentally respond to the information being received. This can be demonstrated during the lessons with participation, after the lesson with a related activity, or much later through homework assignments or quizzes.
