Critical Listening

Education is not the filling of a vessel, rather the kindling of a flame.
~Socrates

Critical listening occurs when you still want to understand what the other person is saying, but also have

some reason or responsibility to evaluate what is being said to you and how it is being said.

For example, if there’s an upcoming election and you need to decide who to vote for,

you probably use some form of critical listening when you watch a televised debate.

You listen, AND you evaluate.

Critical literacy helps us ask questions about what we hear, see and read.

To look at why people say things the way they do, how they want us to feel, to think or to act.

Knowing this can help us with choices we make when shopping, choosing a school or course for our children, voting, banking or travelling and lots more.
