Learning to integrate listening skills in the classroom, community, and at home is critical for children with visual impairments. This lesson emphasizes the steps in using listening skills by recalling what classmates have said. Students practice asking questions that are related to a topic and then follow with asking additional on-topic questions. In this lesson, students listen to what was explained and learn to ask follow-up questions related to the topic. By using these skills, students will enhance their conversations among their peers. The key to the goal is to forge strategies to carry into real life.
