  • The Power of Listening: Practical Skills to Resolve Conflict and Facilitate Classroom Discussion

    Len Mozzi

    Communication Life Skills

    Listening is one of a teacher’s most powerful tools. The art of listening encourages students to speak more clearly and authentically and empowers teachers to connect to their students with understanding and empathy. In this workshop, teachers will explore and practice both active listening and empathetic listening through theater exercises, simulations, and large and small group discussions. Teachers then apply those skills to resolve conflict between students and encourage productive classroom discussions.
