Teaching as Storytelling
When learning is presented as a story, students are more likely to understand the material as relevant to their lives. I incorporate the person in teaching and learning, making flexible but structured space for students to consider their relationships to ideas, texts, and other people. My goal is to enable students to risk approaching learning as people who might be affected by what they read and by what they create. Taking this risk depends on studentsí having confidence and finding a purpose in self-reflection.
