Helping Preservice Teachers Discover the Value of Storytelling Strategies in Language Arts Instruction.
Williams, Ty; Myers, Susan D.
Storytelling has long been recognized as a valuable tool in elementary instruction. Storytelling strategies improve concept integration, and also provide children with experiences of working collaboratively. Through a combined effort between faculty and a doctoral student, a workshop was implemented to introduce the topic of storytelling to preservice teachers enrolled in a language arts methods course. The purpose of the workshop was to provide students an opportunity to explore and practice storytelling strategies that could be implemented in a language arts curriculum. The preservice teachers' responses indicated this innovative method could help bridge the gap between theory and real world applications for children. Contains 10 references. A 12-item list of storytelling web sites is attached. (Author/RS)
