Summary

In an eleventh-grade unit, students studied and practiced the art of storytelling and then went into elementary classrooms to tell stories to first-grade and second-grade children. Students prepared for the storytelling sessions by reading books on storytelling techniques, inviting a local storyteller to class and then videotaping and studying her presentation, and--with the aid of an elementary school librarian--choosing books to read to the children. The unit helped students to learn about elements of literature, as they examined children's books to choose those they would read, and it also helped to increase students' oral interpretation skills and composure before an audience. In addition, the unit established communication between the elementary and secondary schools and related to the home economics teacher's unit on child development and parenthood. (GW)
