Good morning my true believer friends,
I thought this might be a great space for us to share what we are learning about learning and leadership. Also a place for us to keep in touch.
I will get us started here with a place to share what we are learning about storytelling as an instructional method. Some of us got together this week (September 16th) and during the conversation there were some comments made about how many of you had recently used story in some form with your teaching. I invite you to share what you did and how it worked.
I'll start by sharing that the 30 minute teaching demonstration that I did on using story as an instructional method went very well. I used a story/poem to start the demonstration titled "The Naked Truth and Parable." I also used a story review strategy as a way to discover what people had learned at the end of the demonstration. Thanks to the feedback I got from many of you through the opportunity to practice twice. I previously sent you all a copy of the document I put together summarizing the research I had done on the topic.
Have a great weekend,
