Teaching through Narrative
Hannam, Fraser Douglas
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2015 n2 2015
Story telling in its most basic form is a means by which a culture passes onto the next generation what they have found to be useful, to be of value, or to be good. Curriculum can be understood as a certain way of telling a story about the world. By contextualising units of work within a narrative, lessons become more meaningful, dynamic and engaging for the learner. This paper will explore the importance of narrative as a delivery system for curriculum and will unpack the Story Form Model through the identification of binary opposites and the organising of content into narrative form.
