By Word of Mouth: A Storytelling Guide for the Classroom.
Gere, Jeff; Kozlovich, Beth-Ann; Kelin, Daniel A., II
Story telling is one of the most basic ways of sharing knowledge, of making sense of experiences, and of seeing oneself in relation to others. In the classroom, story telling is an important activity with strong links to literacy. This guide provides a selection of classroom resources for teachers seeking to develop literacy skills in elementary school students through story telling. The guide contains information and classroom activities from practitioners with three different perspectives on speech and performance. Following an Introduction, articles in the guide are: "Storytelling Tools for the Classroom" (Jeff Gere); "Storytelling 101: Helping Kids Tell Their Own Stories" (Beth-Ann Kozlovich); and "Storytelling Activities" (Daniel A. Kelin II). (NKA)
