The oral tradition of storytelling has served to stir the imagination of human kind since time immemorial yet it has been all but lost in our dry, isolationistic digital age. We need to revive the art of storytelling for all, as an essential art form and as a means of emotional and affective communication. This theopractical presentation considers storytelling techniques for teachers and for young learners. Practical strategies will be borrowed from the world of educational drama to develop both vocal and body expression, laying the emphasis on pacing, rhythm and volume, mime, facial gesture, and action. No great resources will be suggested but an understanding of the concept of “The Speaking Body in the Empty Space” will be seen as essential, with the Teacher and the Student being the real resources. Teachers should leave with lots of practical ideas to use in their classrooms when term starts.
