The STORRI Method: A Strategy for Exploring and Integrating Youth Culture into the Classroom
Neely, Anthony D.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v88 n2 p45-49 2015
As teachers progress in life and career, generation gaps may begin to appear that decrease not only the effectiveness of interaction with students but also the ability to produce generationally relevant course content. Situated in a framework of socioculturalism (Vygotsky 1978), this article presents The STORRI Method--a strategy for exploring and integrating youth culture into the classroom. STORRI is an acronym for the six iterative steps of the method: "survey," "talk," "observe," "research," "reflect," and "integrate." Each step of The STORRI Method is discussed with numerous corresponding examples, and best practices are offered for use in the classroom setting. A case narrative is also provided to demonstrate The STORRI Method's use in a high school level U.S. government course.
