Storytelling's Periodic Table: A Great Tool to Play With

Storytelling's Periodic Table: A Great Tool to Play With | Art and English language tips | Scoop.it
You probably won't recognize these storytelling elements from creative writing class.

 

"Karen Dietz's insight:

Not only is this a great tool to use, but what I really like about this article is that is hows how to use it!

 

"And it gives more background on how the table was created (culled from TV plots). 

 

"The table creates wild and fun plots to play with -- even for business stories! In fact, you may find some of yours buried in here.

 

"Or if you are stuck for stories, play around with the table and I bet you will find some to tell from your real life.

 

"In any event, this should keep you busy and happy for awhile :))"

Another potentially useful writing-style tool

Krishna Prasad Subedi's curator insight, May 11, 2:23 AM

Fear to speak in the target language in non-native speakers' classroom has been a long topic of debate among the educationist, teachers and planners alike. Most children in Nepalese context either feel humiliated before they make mistakes in their utterance. Others fear to share their thoughts due to lack of proper knowledge of target language. While a large group of students, in the school where I teach, do not want to hear the negative feed backs from their teachers. There is always one or other reasons, which may not work together in every students, for excuses to students when it comes to speaking in the targeted language.

Reading at five: Why?

Reading at five: Why? | Art and English language tips | Scoop.it
Kindergarten and preschool education in the U.S. have changed radically since the 1970s when I began teaching young children.

Via Emma Horsey, Von Sawers
Ruth Vilmi's insight:

Do Americans really believe that their children should learn to read in the kindergarten? I believe they start school at the age of 5. I used to believe it was a good idea - we all had to learn to read at c. 4.5 years when I was young. But here in Finland, they learn to read in school at the age of 7, if they haven't learned by themselves before this. And, according to the PISA results, they are one of the most literate nations in the world. Children first need to learn to play!
