Description

`Too afraid to have a go at oral storytelling in the classroom? This is the book for you!...The book guides you through choosing a tale you really enjoy, knowing your audience and not being afraid to adapt a tried and tested fairy tale' - Literacy Time `This book is ideal for all adults working with children (mainly at primary level) and would be especially useful for those less confident or who are new to their role. It provides a great opportunity to practise an inspirational and creative approach to teaching and learning...I really enjoyed this book and took away much to think about' - Ruth Underwood, primary inclusion co-ordinator `The ability level for this book is aimed at teachers teaching ages 5-11 and I'd say the author has it spot on. As an educational resource I rate this book highly and think it is a valuable read for all primary teachers. It helps you to think of how you can use storytelling as a tool in ways you won't have thought of before. It's a very enjoyable read and if you're pushed for time you can just dip into the parts you want. I definitely recommend it' - TES website Drawing on her experience as a professional storyteller, in this book, Alison Davies show teachers how to develop storytelling skills as part of a new engaging approach to creative teaching and learning.
