Teaching Pre-School Children: The Importance of Stories
Date: Tuesday 1 September
With very young learners, stories work magic. The story, then, is not an external means of conveying language – it is more of a journey the child participates in by identifying with the protagonists, worrying about their survival, laughing in situations that give relief, and celebrating their successes. Herbert will show how using stories helps children make meaning of language in a natural way, enhancing the enjoyment of both children and teachers, and making children's learning swifter and easier.
