The Learning To Listen series increases student ability to sustain retentive listening over time. Each book consists of 20 appealing, high-interest stories to be read to students. After listening to each story, students complete a related listening comprehension activity. These require students to retain specific information from the story to answer given questions. Details requiring recall relate to such details as color, order of events, sounds, sights and characters discussed in the story. Activities can be completed as a class, in groups or individually. Initially, as written or aural clues, students are given particular information to listen for before the story is read. As their listening ability develops, memory cues are reduced. Creative expression extension activities accompany each story.
The exercises in this three book series require the listener to actively listen for information in each story and show that they have understood and processed this information by adding information onto the picture that accompanies each story. For each picture (24 per book) there are two stories or set of instructions at two levels of difficulty so each picture can be used twice. The exercises in each book increase in difficulty through the book and through the series. These exercises can also be used for reading comprehension - instead of the story being read to the students the students can read the story themselves and complete the picture.
