To prepare for this post, visit the Free Listening Project story.
Engage in an online discussion by answering the following questions in an initial post. Then, be sure to respond at least once on a classmate’s post. Make both posts meaningful! (Really aim to advance the discussion about listening, NOT a huge political rant!):
a) Where have you experienced defensive listening lately – at home, work, or school? Is it more difficult to listen to certain topics than others?
b) What lesson did you learn from this article? Can you apply any part of this to your daily conversations when you are having difficulty seeing the other side of an argument?
c) Do you have another suggestion to help with listening when you disagree?
