As a class we created our own video to help us understand the different types.
After practising each type of listening, we realised…
- Busy listening makes us feel like you’re not listening to us. We found it really hard to keep talking.
- Me too listening makes us feel frustrated and sad that you think your story is more important.
- Active listening makes us feel valued. We know you are listening because you are looking, nodding, asking questions.
As a class we are all trying to get better at being active listeners.
