What type of literature do you use to target listening comprehension? Many times we emphasize short passages that may be either fiction or non-fiction, but have you ever thought of using poetry? Depending on the level of your students, you can create questions that are literal in nature or questions that involve more non-literal language concepts. I, personally, love Shel Silverstein. My guess is that most school libraries would have at least one of his books available. Another option would be to visit ReadWorks.com. These poems already have questions available and range in difficulty and subject from K-12.
Do you or have you used poetry in therapy? What drawbacks or benefits have you seen?
