Other subjects, such as History, can be augmented with the addition of active listening techniques. Contemporary music, for example, can be included in a multimedia presentation relating to a particular historical moment, thus increasing student awareness of cultural context. Active listening is also a key communicative skill and music can be a great way to introduce it into the classroom in a fun and engaging way.
