A Listening Skills Rubric
Developed by Heather Forest
Enthusiastic Listeners Create Great Storytellers!
It's more fun to tell a story it is evident that the listeners want to hear it.
Observable Traits of an Enthusiastic Listener
An alert, enthusiastic listener apparently focuses attention on the speaker, and responds appropriately to dramatic or comedic moments in the communication with silence, laughter, and body language. This type of active listening encourages the communicator.
A listener may be paying attention and yet not seem to be so. This rubric assesses the observable traits of a listener whose intention is to encourage a speaker by showing interest.
Listening Skills Assessment (All of the Time = Competency)
Once someone has become an alert, competent listener, it is possible to assess how much of communication has been comprehended.
