There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.”
~Ursula K. Le Guin~
The poignancy of this quote presents how storytelling has been part of cultures since time immemorial and its the significant role in plays. Most people think stories exist to entertain, or could even be part of education in a community. These two aspects are important and play a part in the passing down of oral stories, however, people have been telling stories since ancient times because it kept them resilient.
There is neuroscience and evidence to back-up this history. Oral storytelling not only promotes early literacy and healthy child development, it is also a protective factor in resiliency. In this workshop you will learn the basis for how oral storytelling promotes these aspects needed for resilient children. In addition, you will be provided with some basic content, techniques and strategies on how to effectively tell oral stories and integrate them into your early learning programs.
