Narrative Stories Enhance Learning
Rossiter notes: Stories are effective as educational tools because they are believable, rememberable, and entertaining (Neuhauser 1993).
We have had many narratives though out our required literature. This week really drives homes the critical need for narratives and the benefits associated with narratives. Daily, I see the value in narratives within parenting, mentoring, and education. Just yesterday my 12 year old daughter told me a story that I told her when she was in Kindergarten. My daughter informed me of how that story aided in her achievement all A’s. I am sure we all have many examples of real life learning experiences through narratives.
I am assuming Narratives will be a critical requirement for our projects. What is the best way to document the narrative responses for our 1-2-3 projects?
