Why learn through storytelling?
Using storytelling as a mechanism in teaching involves structuring learning around a narrative.
It helps children (and adults) make sense of issues and topics by engaging them in a story, making facts easier to remember and participants more open to learning.
The benefits of learning through storytelling does not stop at increasing knowledge of the subject area - storytelling encourages creativity, expands vocabulary, increases attention span and helps to reinforce morals.
