A Story-Based Model from Turkey to Foster Preschool Children's Communicative Input and Performance in the Process of Mother Tongue Acquisition
Kabadayi, Abd├╝lkadir
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v6 n3 p301-307 2005
It is an undeniable fact that storytelling makes a remarkable contribution to the domains of child development at an early age since it is stated that storytelling is the original form of teaching. Firstly, the contributions and effects of storytelling techniques to the cultural, cognitive, linguistic, socio-emotional and psychological domains of children between three and eight years old are reviewed. Secondly, a "story-based model" is proposed for preschool teachers to apply effectively in the frame of before-implementing, while-implementing and post-implementing phases in mother tongue acquisition. Lastly, some suggestions are made for preschool teachers to implement the model to foster linguistic, cognitive, social and emotional domains of preschool children effectively in the classroom.
