The Power of Listening®
The Power of Listening® is a new educational game that uses a movie theme to teach young people specific skills that will help them to become good listeners. Players learn six listening skills and four aspects of listening for verbal and non-verbal cues, such as tone of voice and body language. Players learn to focus on the feeling of the speaker as well the content of what the speaker says. As guidance, there are twenty-four stars with feeling words on the game board. The six skills and four categories of cues are also on the game board.

The six listening skills are:

1. Focus on the speaker.

4. Listen for feeling and content.

2. Show you are listening.

5. Ask questions if necessary.

3. Listen and watch for cues.

6. Wait your turn and respond.

There are four kinds of cards. Movie Cards contain a few “lines” from a fictitious movie and the feeling that should be conveyed when reading the lines. When picking a Movie Card, players act out the lines on the card while trying to convey the feeling listed on the card. Other players pick Listening Cards, which ask them to figure out the feeling, summarize the content, identify cues, etc. How Can You Tell? Cards ask players to name or identify specific cues, such as sarcasm or body language. Finally, True-False Cards cover various aspects of listening, reinforcing the skills learned in the game.

A Teacher's Guide with complete lesson plans and questions for discussion is included. Teachers and counselors are amazed how much players improve their listening skills during the play of the game.
