Title: Summarize Active Listening With Digital Sources!

This online article and infographic from the Institute of Public Speaking explains the components involved in active listening, an important skill for students to develop when communicating and collaborating.

Use of this tool will serve as an aid in helping students to meet Alabama's Course of Study standards for locating, recalling, curating, and correctly summarizing information while also learning about the components of active listening.

This activity is a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.
