Supporting Students’ Spoken Language Skills (Listening and Speaking): Applications in Remote Learning Environments – Webinar 2020

This 1-hour webinar will provide practical strategies to help educators support their students’ spoken language skills (listening and speaking) in remote learning environments. Particular attention will be placed on ways to effectively engage students with Language-Based Learning Disabilities (LBLD). We will begin with a brief overview of language, working memory, attention, and auditory processing skills, which are essentials for learning. Additionally, we will consider the myriad of spoken language demands that are an integral part of instruction and learning, such as following verbal instructions, responding to teacher inquiries, using active listening techniques, expressing ideas in a clear and concise manner, and asking clarifying questions. Participants will learn about key strategies to support spoken language demands wherever and however instruction is happening.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how language, working memory, attention, and auditory processing skills are essential for learning.
  • Explain the spoken language (listening and speaking) demands and expectations found in their lessons, activities, and assignments.
  • List instructional practices and strategies that can be used to support students’ spoken language skills (listening and speaking).
