Here the link to a web post: http://www.good.is/post/can-storytelling-keep-kids-hooked-on-science/
It's about education researchers in Australia who are testing to see if storytelling enhances science comprehension and interest. Umm, they don't have to test. Just ask me and some of the teachers I've seen this summer. Of course. Everyone likes stories, they are the classic way to teach. A story cements details in the mind. It's hard for me to understand how we got away from this method of teaching and why we replaced stories with litanies of facts.Science as Storytelling.
