“Jack was great with the children. I like that he gave them clear rules to follow. The story was great and pitched at their level using a familiar story.”

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.
