The Storytelling Classroom – Applications Across the Curriculum
By Sherry Norfolk, Jane Stenson and Diane Williams © 2006
2008 Storytelling World Winner Award
The Storytelling Classroom features Milbre’s article “Making Sand Tray Stories,” which presents the essential elements of Milbre’s hands-on oral storytelling workshop for primary and elementary students. Using the irresistible tactile element of sand, and evocative miniature objects and figures, children build their confidence in “talking story,” learning about narrative elements along the way.
With chapters for pre-school through eighth grade and dozens of lesson plans, each article addresses national curriculum standards, objectives and assessments, offering practical, easily replicable lesson plans, for use by teachers and teaching storytellers alike.
