Listening exercise


Hi all

Happy New Year to you all. Hope you all had a good festive season.

I used to do a listening exercise which consisted of a 'story' that was read out and then delegates were asked true/false questions about it, the answers to which highlighted people's own perceptions/filters. (E.g. the name of the person in the story was gender neutral and one of the questions/statements was about whether they were male or female).

I can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anyone have something similar I could use that demonstrates how people's own filters affect their understanding/what they think they hear?

Thanks in advance

    It sounds like the Goldilocks story that we use for listening skills. There is a short story that is read and then a number of True or False questions which are asked, which highlight listening and assumptions. 

    If you would like to DM me your emial address I can send it over.
