This book helps students listen for gist and specific information, to make inferences and to progress to content-based activities. Expanding Skills for Understanding is the intermediate level of the Active Listening series. By activating students' knowledge of a topic before they listen, the text gives them a frame of reference to make intelligent predictions about what they will hear. The listening activities are content-based, drawing on real information from a variety of sources.
