Telling a story about telling stories
This is a 6 minute video from PBS demonstrating how story telling facilitates development of oral language and literacy in preschool.
A short excerpt:
“APRIL BROWN: This classroom is where Lori Espinoza brings stories to life, as her pre-K students are eager to go along for the ride.
DEBBIE PAZ, Rice University: We know that oral language is the foundation for everything that will happen later on. It’s what they will need for reading and writing later on.
