Storytelling techniques in the classroom

Innovate My School ideas

I found out about ‘Innovate My School’ on Twitter.  They share and inspire innovative ideas in the education sector with their huge online community and events.  I’m really passionate about inspiring the next generation of readers, writers and storytellers in creative and collaborative ways.

As I spend quite a bit of time storytelling in schools and have done lots of research around supporting literacy in the UK, I offered to do a guest online post on some of my ideas which could help teachers and educators in the classroom.

We exchanged a few ideas about what would be inspiring and helpful to Innovate My School readers and I wrote about 5 storytelling techniques to support literacy in the classroom.  You can read the article on the Innovate My School website.
