A Storytelling Tactic
Transcript of A Storytelling Tactic
Storytelling to Teach Reading 1. Whenever possible, the teacher should use storytelling to illustrate events in history, science or other subject areas. The teacher may use a storytelling technique to make the event realistic for the students. 2. When using storytelling to illustrate or present events from other subject areas, supplement the storytelling with video, films or subsequent discussions of the pictures in the subject textbook. Ask about any differences students may have noted between the teacher's story and the pictures in the text. 3. Have students tell stories of various types such as true stories or make up stories - to illustrate concepts. 4. Have several students retell the same story, movie, or television show. Explore the differences in each student's version, without judging any student "right" or "wrong" 5. In the middle of stories, stop to check on children's understanding of the narrative. 6. Have students use physical movement in telling stories to the class. A student retells the story while others silently "act out" the story. 7. Use music, rhythms or chants to tell stories to elicit active participation of students with varied abilities. 8. Have the students discuss and subsequently demonstrate how they might tell the same story to different groups such as with parents or friends. 9. Expose different students to different parts of the same story and let them narrate sequentially. 10. Encourage students to use or make a video presentation of the story.
