Question description


Chapter 3 defines listening as "paying close attention to, and making sense of, what we hear." The key to listening is the sense-making process. In order to do this, one has to CHOOSE to be an active listener. Active listening involves concentration and a commitment to sustained/prolonged focus. It's a difficult, energy draining skill-but it's critical to mastering anythin from school work to playing an instrument. In modern times, we have a million forms of distraction that make concentration difficult.

What are some of the distractions (or **interferances**) that you experience in your day to day life when you're trying to concentrate. Be honest! I know facebook and instagram should be on the list!

What are some of the things you do to avoid or minimize distractions when you're trying to actively listen?

Do you think active listening is always necessary? For example, do you have to be an active listener when engaging in Appreciative listening? What about Empathetic listening?

Ethics and Public Speaking

Plagiarism is a huge issue on college campuses across the nation. While global plagiarism (stealing from a single source) isn't as common due to software like turnitin, other forms of plagiarism are extremely common. Sometimes it's intentional (procrastinating and doing your research paper the night before-smh), and sometimes it's not (accidentally forgetting to accurately cite a source). Either way it's considered unethical and usually punished according to the ethical standards of your institution.

Do you struggle with  research? Why do you find it difficult? What are some measures you can take to ensure that you avoid plagiarism?
