Practice of Listening:

Experiencing Sounds of Our Environment
Listening, Understanding and Giving Meaning

In this module, you will practice various ways of listening, understanding, and giving meaning to the sounds of your surroundings.

  • You will identify an environment- a place (e.g. kitchen, dining room, basketball field, neighborhood, streets, malls, supermarket, post office, restaurant, etc.)

  • You will collect all your experience in a sound journal (take notes of the sounds you hear based on the environment you identify.)

  • You will use your senses to record all your experience (sounds and sights) as you keep notes of the sounds you are listening to from your surroundings.

  • You will experiment with listening practices: give words to the sounds, noises, conversations, talks, car horns, and music.
