Aesop, Plato, Shakespeare, and Jesus used stories and we still remember what they said hundreds or even thousands of years later. When a lesson is taught with a story, the lesson will be remembered. This technique works especially well with Science and Social Studies. Everyone knows that it’s a good idea but where can we find the stories that we need? This is a thought-provoking and very practical workshop. (K-12)
