Teaching Science and Math using stories: The Storyline approach.
A STEAM Story workshop.
Storytelling is an age old and powerful means of communication that can be used as an effective teaching strategy in the science and math classroom. Lets begin the journey of unraveling the long line of truth. Observe what is happening through pictures or visual imagery, predict outcomes on the basis of knowledge, evaluate what has taken place from different perspectives and draw conclusions from the event as a whole.
