TEXT SET REFLECTIONEvery person I have ever spent time with has shared a story with meor listened to a story I have had to share. It is my belief that everyonewants to hear and tell stories and since literature is all about tellingstories it draws our interest and captures our imagination. Which iswhy I believe, every subject in school has a story to go with it and thatis what makes it interesting, compelling or desirable to learn about.
