STORYTELLING HAS MANY BENEFICIAL EFFECTS.
Pupils learn to:
Listen and concentrate.
Develop their language by engaging in related oral activities(discussion, exploring memory, visualisation, creating new stories, telling and re-telling stories themselves).
Discover the worth of their own voices and those of others.
Develop respect for themselves and for others.
Widen the range of their emotional, moral and cultural responses.
STORYTELLING = SPEAKING AND LISTENING = COMMUNICATING!
