Bottom-Up Listening Activities
Would you like to add more listening activities to your repertoire? If so, this webinar may be of interest to you. Our presenter will provide an overview of top-down and bottom-up listening, and then argue for including more bottom-up listening in lessons. Most listening textbooks focus on top-down listening, but this does not tell us where exactly our students are having troubles. By focusing on bottom-up listening, teachers can diagnose problems with phonemic contrasts, syntactic variations, and even pronunciation. Participants will leave with several practical listening activities to try out, as well as an approach to meaningful, goal-focused, bottom-up listening instruction.
