Listening is one of the Topical Talk skills. It is important because good listeners learn more - and they can make informed decisions about what's happening in the news.
Your challenge this week is to describe what it means to "listen" using an acrostic poem.
An acrostic poem is where you put the title word down the side and write a SHORT line starting with each letter.
You should use the word LISTEN for your poem. For example, you could say:
Let other people talk first
It's important to hear from other perspectives
- Keep your lines short by thinking carefully about your choice of words
- Make sure your words describe the word LISTEN
- Try to think of new ideas that have not been said before
