Consisting of a series of essays written by storytellers who work in the classroom, as well as teachers who use storytelling in the classroom, this title addresses specific curriculum areas, and includes practical, easily replicable lesson plans. Also included is a review and explanation of the current research on the value of storytelling in the classroom in teaching the whole brain using the multiple intelligences and the integration of thinking in the left and right brain. It makes valid connections to educational standards in curriculum areas. Topics addressed are from the dual viewpoints of storytellers and educators. The Storytelling Classroom is an inspiring, practical and immediately applicable collection of preK through eighth grade lesson plans by and for teachers and media specialists who use storytelling in the classroom and storytellers who work in the classroom. Each lesson plan is linked to National Standards in Language Arts Social Studies, Math or Science and accompanied by an essay which provides a glimpse of the alchemy that occurs when students, teachers and story are brought together: student engagement, classrooms that are alive with thinking students, LEARNING!

"Sherry Norfolk, Jane Stenson, and Diane Williams have put together a collection of 48 classroom activities submitted by almost as many storytellers. Some are submitted by teachers, some by professional storytellers. The activities are arranged by grade level and the authors note national standards which can be met through each activity. Many ideas here for expanding the story into a classroom activity." - In the Wind
"[P]rofessional storytellers and K-8 teachers contribute suggestions on how to implement strategies that complement instructional units as well as satisfy national educational standards. Lesson objectives are explained in detail as well as the best methods for assessing student comprehension of a story. Activities emphasize student communication and multiple intelligences....A valuable bibliography of pertinent resources is located at the end of this book. The Storytelling Classroom would be a worthwhile purchase for educators who teach subject content through stories. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
"Arranging presentation by grade level from kindergarten up through grade eight, the four chapters in this teaching resource collect lesson plans and activities based around stories for teaching language arts, science, math, and social studies.
