AbstractThin study investigated the effects of listening instruction as a method of improving listening comprehension skills of first grade students. It also examined the relationship between student's listening comprehension and reading comprehension, viewing the differences between these areas when students were grouped by sex. The subjects consisted of 16 first grade students, 7 fema1es and 9 males. To determine the listening comprehension level of each student, the Analytical Reading Inventory Form A was administered. The students then received listening instruction in both general and critical listening skills for a period of eight months. Following the instructional period, Form C of the Analytical Reading Inventory was given to determine growth in listening comprehension. Reading comprehension scores were obtained from the Stanford Achievement Test. A correlated t-test was used to determine the significant differences in the listening comprehension scores. Scores from the postlistening comprehension test and the reading comprehension test were analyzed to determine correlation coefficients. Data indicated that listening instruction did significantly improve listening comprehension scores. No significant relationship was found between the postlistening comprehension scores and the reading comprehension scores. There were no significant differences reported between the sexes in listening or reading comprehension. The findings suggest that listening instruction does significantly help to increase listening comprehension.

Executive Functions as Predictors of Classroom Listening SkillsHungerford, Suzanne; Douglas, Priscilla; Selvarajah, Elizabeth (2012)The purpose of this study was to determine if executive functions, including working memory, are predictors of spoken language processing skills (or listening skills ) in the classroom, as measured by the Children's Auditory Performance Scale (CHAPS). Contribution of executive skills to classroom listening has important implications for assessment and remediation.
Bob Dylan And The "New Left": A Case Study of a Protest Singer's Role in Influencing the Listeners' Attitudes, Values and BeliefsHinchliffe, David G.; The College at Brockport (1974-05-01)The late 1950's and the early 1960’s in America was the scene of a movement to overthrow the reigning symbols of authority. Bob Dylan was a rhetor who became a "prophet” for this movement. In fact, Dylan’s ability to state issues both simply and poetically made him perhaps the most prophetic of the movement's rhetors. This movement first took root in the 1950’s in the movement for “civil rights” and the establishment of the “New Left.” The latter was an organization of intellectuals who, spurred by the thoughts of C. Wright Mills, grouped for the purpose of nuclear disarmament and the maintenance of peace. This began to emerge as the movement for “peace” and became entwined with the civil movement to form an even larger movement which opposed the reigning symbols of American authority. This study deals with the rhetor who was probably the most successful in expressing the values, attitudes and beliefs of this opposition movement –Bob Dylan. It is, more importantly, an attempt to discern the motives of Bob Dylan and the movement, the rhetorical strategies of Bob Dylan and the success of Dylan and the movement. In its finality this study will attempt to measure the overall effect of Bob Dylan, a rhetor who, dissatisfied with the reigning symbols of American authority, tried to actualize his dream, persuade the uncommitted Americans, and promote the actualization of a perfect American social order.
Research Paper And Video Project About Music Technology Evolution And Its Effects On Artist Revenue and Consumer ListeningStam, Kathryn; Thesis Advisor; Lizardi, Ryan; Second Reader; Lazar, Neer (2021-06)In this paper I will try to show how the technology that changed over time affected both artists and music consumers. The theory from some of the literature I found is that disruptions in music technology also had many economic impacts to both artists and their audience. In the literature it is suggested that streaming rectified the revenue hit that was derived from the ill effects of digital piracy. In this paper and in the accompanying video that can be found here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/15IIBwwFLZqpnfqPl_pqmR YsAHgfjMuiN/view?usp=sharing I will describe the evolution of the technological changes and show that these advances also had the same exponential curve in change very similar to the changes that occurred in print although the ability to record sound arrived thousands of years after the ability to record letters and words. However, at some point the technological changes created the same kind of disruptions - meaning the ability to record sound and transport it and listen to it in various ways. This created markets and economic advancements that were not there before - again similar in many ways to technological changes in other fields. Later in this paper I will focus on the last few years of these changes with an emphasis on streaming technologies. This in my opinion a change that is still ongoing and was transformational in the way revenue distribution came back after a very tough time that included a breakdown in the established industry and the piracy that affected it during this crisis. Another theory is that the instant gratification of on demand technology that gives consumers exactly what they want when they want it was also solved with streaming music services. The literature that I chose to cite and that I based my research on was primarily from trade magazines and industry news. These articles paint a picture of a changing landscape in the music industry and also talk about some of my ideas that led me to research and write this paper.
