Student-centered classrooms are filled with conversation. We spend so much time teaching students how to talk, but comparatively little time giving them skills on how to become really great active listeners. This TEDEd video, created by The School of Life, offers four tips on how we can all be great listeners that make our conversation partners feel comfortable and confident in sharing their ideas.
