Storytelling, Civilization's Oldest Oral Art - Its Value in the Classroom

Anthropologists, psychologists and historians believe that storytelling has been with us since the beginning of our existence - in fact, they argue that storytelling defines our humanity. There is a universality in storytelling in that it continues to be used as a form of human expression in virtually all parts of the world. Integrating storytelling techniques in the classroom can help inspire, engage, and motivate. When we share stories we create a community of listeners bound by a common experience. What separates us tends to fade away. We discover we are all connected at the heart of the human experience.
