This handbook describes a revolutionary way of delivering primary education. In a storytelling school all children learn to be storytellers, retelling and improving stories from memory as a way of learning both language and subject content across the curriculum. Children graduate with a repertoire of their own stories to tell. This dynamic approach to developing literacy helps children improve their writing, listening, empathy, speaking, reading, comprehension, performance, memory, imagination and confidence. This approach has been shown to raise standards and fire imaginations in schools throughout the UK.

Chris Smith and Adam Guillain show you how to make this happen. The handbook draws on more than ten years experience researching and developing this way of teaching. Piloted, researched and updated, this second edition includes new chapters on non-fiction teaching and cross-curricular integration across the school. It is packed with practical activities, examples, theory, charts, diagrams and pages to photocopy. The Storytelling School offers step-by-step explanations on how to become a storytelling school, including how to:

Tell stories to your class
Develop and innovate on a learned story
Invent new stories
Link storytelling to improving writing standards
Apply the method to non-fiction teaching
Plan across the curriculum using the Storytelling School approach
