Speaking and Listening

Narrative for (SL) Speaking and Listening

An important focus of the speaking and listening standards is academic discussion in one-on-one, small-group, and whole-class settings. Formal presentations are one important way such communication occurs, but so is the more informal discussion that takes place as students collaborate to ask and answer questions, build understanding, and solve problems.

These standards require that students gain, evaluate and present information, ideas, and evidence through listening and speaking as well as through incorporating media. Regardless of the speaking and listening setting, students are expected to use appropriate eye contact, adequate volume, and clear pronunciation.

The standards within this speaking and listening strand are closely linked with the other strands of reading, writing, and language as they discuss literature and informational texts and as they work through the writing process.

Calculation Method for Strands

Strands are larger groups of related standards. The Strand Grade is a calculation of all the related standards. Click on the standard name below each strand to access the learning targets and proficiency scales for each strand's related standards.
