Life Lessons through Storytelling : Children's Exploration of Ethics Paperback / softback
by Donna Eder
Storytelling empowers children to engage in discussions; explore ideas about power, respect, community, fairness, equality, and justice; and help frame their understanding of complex ethical issues within a society.
In Life Lessons through Storytelling, Donna Eder interviews elementary students and presents their responses to stories from different cultures.
Using Aesop's fables and Kenyan and Navajo storytelling traditions as models for classroom use, Eder demonstrates the value of a cross-cultural approach to teaching through storytelling, while providing deep insights into the social psychology of learning.
