Who doesn’t love a good story?
Storytelling has been around for a very long time...From oral storytelling to pictographs to the printing press to visual stories, to digital storytelling and to virtual reality storytelling. Storytelling helps us to share our histories and pass down cultural beliefs, and histories. Stories connect us.
A well-told story motivates us, moves us, and entertains us, but telling or writing a good story can be challenging and intimidating, especially for our students. Many of us likely use a variety of storytelling strategies in our classes - collaborative storytelling adds another dimension to storytelling. Collaborative storytelling involves a group of people who write a story together. One person begins the story and others add threads to it as the story evolves. With the imaginations of a community, a story will go in surprising directions.
