Great article, and helpful thoughts. I find that it is number one for me when teaching, to constantly check myself and regulate “teacher talk”.

The worse thing is when a teacher is gabbing on about how wonderful this or that idea is and then suddenly see a room full of glazed up student eyes staring into space.

Listening is a life skill that takes time and self knowledge to learn. Thanks for writing this article, Sean
