"High school history has a tremendous obstacle to learning — getting students enthusiastic about reading difficult texts. When I teach World History to my 9th graders, I have come up with a list of 6 common challenges I face when trying teach reading comprehension. Here’s a glimpse into how I meet these 6 challenges and help my students win!"

Reading comprehension is so important. There are so many children who can decode brilliantly but have difficulty with comprehending...an essential part of reading. Good tips.

What a cool article. I love the point made about innovation: there are actually 6 different types of innovation in business -- and each is also a story type or genre.


Brilliant. And the author, Clay Hausmann, shares good examples for each type of innovation. Now all we have to do is craft stories for the types of innovation we are involved in.


My guess is that in some companies all kinds of innovation is happening. Here is your list of the types of stories you can tell that reflect the types of innovation at play.


The lesson for us all? Within a story type -- customer stories, let's say -- there are sub-types of stories to capture and share. In my work, sub-types of customer stories are leader stories, fundraising stories, advocacy stories, influence stories, etc. I could drill down into each of these sub-types and find additional story types. For example, leader stories can be broken down further to confidence, visioning, particular values, etc.


The point is that there is an infinite number of stories a business can tell. Use this article as a jumping-off place and start mapping your story types and sub-types. You will be amazed at the material you have, and the different angles you will find!
