Telling Stories

26 Sep

Um, how amazing is this?

TED curated a series of six lectures on the topic of storytelling, all of which are so wonderful and would be so rich for kids to watch in school. I particularly love Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s piece on the danger of a single story. You can find her piece as well as the five others in there series here.

It’s narrative-writing time in our school, and I’m also in an essay-writing course at the local U. So, stories are on my mind these days, big time.
