Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead | New learning | Scoop.it
Storytelling in its way can have just as much complexity as music or mathematics. That we don’t really understand this craft – or that this is a craft – is partly because of the romantic myth of “inspiration” peddled by authors as much as anyone. It is taught (up to a point) in creative writing degrees – but it can be simplified enough to be taught to schoolchildren as well.

Excelente propuesta educativa para enseñar a contar cuentos (y construir desde las palabras) más que una gramática abstracta sin contexto ni sustento. Va con lectura política incluida.

Great!

When I moved to activies like Fractured Fairytales, students took considerable care with spelling, punctuation, and grammar. They asked others and me to proofread.
