Overview

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin. Stories are powerful things to all cultures and throughout all of history. Stories can heal, inspire, delight, enrage, but ultimately change our views of ourselves, other people and the world around us. Will Coleman knows this - as a storyteller, educational consultant, and, the founder of Brave Tales, a company that uses storytelling as a medium to explore and support the ways in which children make sense of their world.

This book introduces the powerful techniques of storytelling and storyboarding in developing literacy and nurturing creativity and collaboration in the classroom. The accompanying DVD features film footage of children using the techniques in the classroom. And they all lived happily ever after. The End.
