Science Buzz Cafe # 431 The Right Story at the Right Time: Marianna deCroes
There is a difference between reading a story and truly telling a story. Learn how and why. Marianna’s book and workshops explore the art and craft of storytelling and its use as a pedagogical tool for helping children and teenagers meet and overcome their challenges.
Hear about the ages and stages for telling the right story for almost any life situation. Teachers and parents can make use of the wide array of existing fairy tales, myths and legends or make up their own! Stories can be integrated into most any activity or curriculum.
Learn how to tell a short little story – a fable – after the break.
