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.
