Slides to support a presentation on the importance of narrative and storytelling in education. BYTE Conference, Neepawa, Manitoba, 22 February 2013.

In a word or two you remember the whole story: glass slipper, sour grapes, cold porridge. You remember more than the facts (a step mother and two step sisters, an absent father, a godmother) you remember the relationships and deeper connections between the characters (nasty step mom and sisters, warm but lonely friendships with the animals in the house, a dream of a better life). The challenge for teachers and students is not to find problems but to find stories. Powerful narratives, in a word or two, bring to mind a wealth of ideas and relationships; more than just facts. How can we find the stories that make our teaching sticky? How do we help kids find, and more importantly tell, the stories that make their learning sticky? We’ll look at some strong examples and send you on your way with a toolkit of ideas and practices to make teaching and learning sticky in your class.
