When Aboriginal and Métis Teachers use Storytelling as an Instructional Practice – PDF.

By: Melanie MacLean and Linda Wason-Ellam.

preview from the paper: “In traditional times, storytelling was used for many reasons—to teach values, beliefs, morals, history, and life skills in Indigenous communities. Storytelling still holds value as it has become a powerful and interactive instructional tool in today’s classrooms. In this naturalistic research study, the co-researchers used conversational interviewing to explicate how teachers use storytelling as a teaching practice throughout the curriculum in elementary, middle, and secondary schools. Seven First Nations and Métis teacher-participants were asked how, why and when storytelling was integral to their professional practices.”- Executive Summary
