BY KAREN PACK ProTeam Instructor Patrick Newsome's students were learning how to be effective listeners in the lesson, "Listen Up!" Using the three reasons for listening: to retain, to understand, and to establish trust and confidence, students wrote and performed short skits on the importance of being an effective listener.

My class collaborated on the Career Boardwalk activity by coming to consensus about the most important qualities to look for with careers. We placed the most important qualities on the top row, the next important on the middle row, and the qualities they considered least important on the bottom row. Since my floor has checkerboard tile, it made a great foundation for the activity.
