We’ve been talking a lot about the importance and efficacy of storytelling as a teaching tool. Telling a story can also be a great way to sell yourself in an interview, to build support for a project you hope to accomplish, or to highlight and share the success of a project. If you aren’t a natural storyteller or if you’d like to sharpen your natural skills, take a look at “Storytelling for Leaders: How to Craft Stories that Matter.”
Whether you're telling the story of the periodic table, the lifecycle of a plant, the discovery of penicillin, the invasion of Normandy, or the evolution of the novel, the worksheets are likely to spark some ideas for spicing up your classes. I especially enjoyed the worksheet on “Story Archetypes,” since several of these fit in nicely with the history of science.
