Teaching Tip: Listening for Verbal Signals

Encourage your students to listen for verbal signals as you and other teachers lecture. Focus on statements that signal key concepts (e.g., most important), support for a point (e.g., for instance), differences (e.g., on the other hand), and summarization (e.g., in conclusion).

Your students will be more effective note takers if they pay attention to these verbal signals.
