Benefits of Storytelling

According to Carmody (http://www.thestoryteller.ca/index.html), benefits of storytelling include the following:

Listening to stories as they are told by another:

• develops listening skills

• increases concentration

• develops vocabulary

• develops a sense of story

• motivates students to read

Learning to tell stories to others:

• improves oral language skills

• improves story writing

• develops the students’ understanding of plot and sequence

• encourages reading and critical thinking skills
