active and busy listening

Description: In learning today we made a video about all the types of listening.You could to active or busy or or me to listening. We made a busy and active video.  

image: Hope you enjoy

Big idea: The learning is active listening or me to and busy listening. Active listening is where you are using eye contact and asking questions about there theme. Me to listening is when some one is talking about how they went to rainbows end. The other person talks about how they went to Disney land. Busy listening is when someone is talking to you and the other person is not listening.

Evaluation: I think I did well on my video  because I pronounced it write but next time I will put all three things in.

Feedback: I like how you took turns instead of 1 person just recording.
Feedforward: Next time you could add the me too listening on there too.

One word

 Description: my word is inspire. I want to inspire people to do stuff that they never tried. Like if someone wanted to be house leader, school ambassador or road partroller. They thought they wouldn't make it I would say "just do it". I would help people think about what they need to write and explain why they want to do it.
