Workshop on ‘Effective Storytelling’ for Teachers

A workshop on ‘Effective Storytelling’ was conducted by Mr. Gaurav Yadav for the teachers of Manav Rachna International School, Sec-46, Gurugram. The objective of the workshop was to explore the power of storytelling and its application in a classroom. Mr. Gaurav Yadav enlightened the teachers with the nuances of storytelling and said that storytelling forges connections among people, and between people and ideas. Stories convey the culture, history and values that unite people. It is a powerful means of communication that is being used by teachers worldwide to teach a variety of subjects.

He narrated stories from Mahabharata and went over to discuss the fundamentals of storytelling. To reinforce the concept of storytelling, he divided the teachers into groups and gave them a prompt to create a story of their own.

He concluded by saying that storytelling encourages children to read. Opening the doors for the children to the world of literature, it would help them to develop sequencing, oral language development and expanding language skills too. Teachers’ queries were handled effectively at the end of the session.
