This article discusses the potential value of working with school-aged children to increase their competence with narrative forms. With illustrations from current research, it argues that increased knowledge of, and experience with, narrative should have positive effects on comprehension of classroom language, selective listening, peer relations, and literacy. Narrative interventions can also be incorporated into dynamic assessment protocols and can help us identify children with limitations in language processing.
