Promoting Language via Oral Storytelling

Presented by Trina D. Spencer, co-author of Assessment of Story Comprehension

Storytelling is a sophisticated and academically important language skill that combines both comprehension and expression. The importance of storybook reading is often emphasized over oral storytelling, but when books are less accessible, the power of oral storytelling can be used to promote children’s language skills. In this coffee chat, Dr. Spencer will give a brief presentation on oral storytelling, outlining the key components of stories and how to use them at home or via distance learning.
