Storytelling is a part of who people are as humans. Melvil Dewey himself saw the need to catalog folktales and stories from the oral tradition in the 390s, a section dedicated to social customs. Stories form a part of the very fabric of who people are and give insight into the past as much, if not more so, than the histories. Teachers can leverage their students' own narratives, along with the Four Cs of 21st-century learning, to create educational opportunities within their classrooms. The Four Cs of critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity go hand in hand with storytelling projects in the classroom. This article presents best practices in empowering learners and teaching in the art of storytelling.
