Course Description

Includes the newest research, links to current learning standards, and a variety of multicultural stories and resources that have validated the importance of storytelling in education. Literacy is more effectively taught when the language arts, such as reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and visually representing, are seen as connected and equally important. Storytelling is one of the best ways to teach all of these literacy skills. When children engage in stories, they gain command over language and increase their ability to understand detail and how stories hang together. If students are better at telling stories, they become better at writing and reading them.


A link to the Armchair Ed course assignments and exams will be included in the registration confirmation and receipt email that will be automatically sent to students immediately upon completion of the registration process. Any required textbooks must be purchased separately.
