About the Listening Project: The Listening Project (led by Niobe Way, Hirokazu Yoshikawa, Joseph Nelson, Alisha Ali, David Kirkland, and Crystal Clarke) is an intervention and evaluation project that trains middle school students and their teachers in the method and practice of transformative interviewing to address the crisis of connection across and within communities. Transformative interviewing is designed to expose the false nature of stereotypes through a practice of asking open-ended questions and listening in ways that encourage both the listener and the speaker to transcend divides. Rather than beginning from a place of difference, transformative interviewing allows individuals to connect from a place of openness and curiosity. The goal of this process is to challenge stereotypes, build empathy and trust, and foster more caring school communities. https://steinhardt.nyu.edu/site/ataglance/2017/11/listeningproject.html
