Conversation and Listening Activities: Listening Therapy

Choose a story or article that can be read in 5-10 minutes (1-2 pages). Preface the reading by giving an overview of the article. Then, tell students to write down important words that they hear while you read. Afterwards, discuss the words that the students chose. Facilitate the discussion by asking students to explain why they chose the particular words and what importance they give to the text.
