Listen, Remember, and Review

A instructional activity encourages positive peer interaction and enhances summarizing skills. As a class, scholars discuss the importance of listening alongside ways to better pay attention and remember information while tips and tricks are added to an anchor chart. Small groups play a social skills card game. Participants reflect upon and jot down their experience on a sticky note.
