If a teacher turns the learning over to their learners so they become critical thinkers, this map can be a guide for them. Give this map to the kids as they take on a problem or concept.

This graphic is wonderful. My wheels are already turning as to how I can impart this information to our younger (K-2) students and relate it to the acronym that we currently use in our room: B(elieve)U(understand)D(discover)S(share). I will let you know what ensues. As always...thank you!!

Why is Storytelling so Powerful? A Look at What it does to our Brain

Why is Storytelling so Powerful? A Look at What it does to our Brain | TEACHING ENGLISH FROM A CONSTRUCTIVIST PERSPECTIVE | Scoop.it
Storytelling is one of the most overused and underused techniques at the same time. In this post, we are revealing what storytelling does to our brains.

Long before we had writing as we know it there has been an oral tradition of storytelling. This post looks at the science around storytelling.

Learn about how a story "can put your whole brain to work" and why "our brains become more active when we tell stories." Find out why the brain "learns to ignore certain overused words and phrases" and much more. If you enjoy telling stories, writing stories, or listening to stories check out this post to learn more!

"Anything you’ve experienced, you can get others to experience the same. Or at least, get their brain areas that you’ve activated that way, active too:"

 

"use simple, yet heartfelt language."

"Quick last fact: Our brain learns to ignore certain overused words and phrases that used to make stories awesome"

Art Jones's curator insight, October 28, 2014 5:50 PM

"our brains become more active when we tell stories."

Shaping the Way We Teach English is a fantastic resource that I came across recently. The resource is similar to other online courses from colleges and universities. It's free and accessible through The Online Language Center of the University of Oregon and it is a pretty complete teacher training course that has videos , viewing tasks, transcripts, observation checklists and even recommended supplementary web based reading.

Angela K. Adams's curator insight, October 21, 2015 9:27 PM

Teacher issues - I chose this resource because it discusses a variety of strategies to implement during and English lesson that even includes technology.  I hope to share this resource with other English teachers to give them more ideas on how to get their students more engaged and involved in their lessons as they will add variety to their instructional strategies.
