Reflection: Trust and Respect Active Listening - Section 4: Closure


It was important for students to reflect upon these two questions.  Several of the students realized that often they interrupt speakers and do not hear what the speaker wants to share.  Within the class discussion, the point that it felt good to have someone paying attention and acting like they wanted to hear what was being said was repeated by several students.  Those “talkers” shared that they never realized how important it was to listen completely, but they will attempt to try in the future.
