For February 15, 2014: The ancient art of storytelling is an excellent way to enhance student listening and speaking skills. At her Story Arts Online site, accomplished storyteller Heather Forest masterfully walks you through the storytelling process. She provides numerous plots, lesson suggestions, and rubrics that you can use immediately with your students. Listen to Heather tell stories on her YouTube channel in the Story Theatre. Plan an initial listening exercise around one of these wonderful tales, such as The Squire's Bride, a Norwegian folktale. Visit her store to purchase more of her award-winning folktale collections.
