Summary

Preparing and telling stories in the classroom is fun for both teacher and student, and stories have great value as motivational tools to enhance instruction. Students who have difficulty recalling facts from the textbook easily remember the concepts that are contained within a story. Stories seem to provide frameworks that aid understanding and retention. This Fastback offers tips for using storytelling in middle grade classrooms, noting that having students do the storytelling may have greater motivational benefit than having the teacher tell the stories to the students. The Fastback states that storytelling by students helps to develop higher-level thinking skills, such as analysis and synthesis, as well as skills in oral composition. It is divided into the following sections: Telling Stories in the Classroom; Stories and the Middle Grades; Everyone Can Be a Storyteller (Choosing the Right Story; Getting Started; Additional Tips); Storytelling in the Content Fields (Storytelling in the Social Studies; Family Stories; Storytelling in the Language Arts; Storytelling in Mathematics; Storytelling in the Sciences); More Stories for the Content Areas (Social Studies; Language Arts; Mathematics; Science); Character Education: The Moral of the Story; and The End of Our Story. Lists 67 books and 2 periodicals as resources. (NKA)
