Espresso Listening

Espresso Listening

Service Pack: Available with USO

Subject: English

Video-rich examples of listening strategies for Key Stage 3 pupils from the Channel 4 news team.

The resources in espresso Listening cover the topic from three different angles: listening in a school context, listening in a community context and, thirdly, professional broadcast journalists' approaches to listening. The resources provide listening strategies and skills for pupils, as well as a selection of video-rich examples for pupils to practice these techniques.

News presenters

Offers a series of six in-depth interviews with leading broadcast journalists. Channel 4's Jon Snow, Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Samira Ahmed discuss presenting the news on TV, the radio and reporting from the field. ITV consumer reporter Chris Choi and ITN On's Olivia Hill add perspectives on storytelling and presenting for new media channels respectively. Ahmed Mudawi presents his experiences and ideas from presenting a TV magazine programme for the deaf and hearing-impaired community in British Sign Language.

Pupil parliament

Pupil voice and links to PSHE and Citizenship are woven throughout Pupil parliament. Children can see how one London school has modelled their student council on parliament, the inner-workings of how issues are raised and find why certain issues make it to parliamentary motion. Pupils give insight into their roles, ambitions and achievements as Ministers of Cabinet.

In the community

Showcases how, through developing one's speaking and listening skills, young people's voice can reach wide-ranging audiences; and how they can make a difference! The Lewisham Young Mayors Group is one such example.
