Storytelling

Storytelling is currently undergoing a huge revival as educators everywhere are re-discovering its power as a teaching tool. Everybody loves a good story. Apart from being entertaining, a good story has the capacity to attract and hold our attention as it teaches us important lessons. Storytelling is very relevant to current concerns about education today.

Develop ways of encouraging and motivating your learners by using the traditional craft of storytelling as a means of engaging them in stories and reading. From here, you can download a CPD unit and lesson plans with resources.

It is envisaged that this module will be delivered by a trained storyteller. You can contact The Society for Storytelling and access their storytelling directory.
