Help students understand and practice listening practices essential for developing meaningful relationships and finding common ground
From the RI State Standards on English Language Arts, 2021
Students need to practice speaking and listening with ample opportunities to take part in a variety of rich, structured conversations—as part of a whole class, in small groups, and with a partner.
Being productive members of these conversations requires that students contribute accurate, relevant information; respond to and develop what others have said; make comparisons and contrasts; and analyze and synthesize a multitude of ideas in various domains.
New technologies have broadened and expanded the role that speaking and listening play in acquiring and sharing knowledge and have tightened their link to other forms of communication. Digital texts confront students with the potential for continually updated content and dynamically changing combinations of words, graphics, images, hyperlinks, and embedded video and audio.
