Reply To: Story Telling in class: Yay or Nay?

Hi Zoe,
I teach English, so can totally relate to using storytelling in the classroom. I have to teach the students short stories in addition to writing. As such, I always isolate the themes and main concepts and tell interesting stories to illustrate them. That goes over well with the students. As we discuss the assigned stories, they tell some of their own stories. Storytelling helps with their comprehension.
