To support the development of inclusive storytelling, this exciting resource has been specifically designed to help people to find personal meaning in traditional stories, and so make links between a legend and their own lives.
The resource aims to enable people who are marginalised through communication and language difficulties, to develop skills in narrative and story. The role of stories in their lives is the same as for everyone else – stories are fun and interesting, help you to make friends, understand the world and develop your imagination.
You can use these practical materials flexibly or integrate them into a more formal course for accreditation on the Open College Network course Inclusive Storytelling. With a raft of information, games, activities and stories, and an accompanying DVD containing video footage and PDFs of forms, this resource can help students develop the ability to narrate, which is fundamental to human experience.
"This book would be a useful and practical resource for anyone wanting to take up the art of story telling."
