Storytelling- Angelina

I fully agree that story telling is a way of knowing. For me, story telling was just Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs, or Cinderella but after reading the documents, it changed my mind. From “Our Most Important Way of Knowing” this part stuck out to me, ‘Storytelling is not simply a way to amuse children, or to liven up a dull party, or to kill time around an evening campfire. Storytelling is how we know most of what we know—or think we know”. That made me see that it is literally how it is said, the telling of a story. One story could be about the first person who landed on the moon. I think that storytelling makes things more bearable to hear about. Not everyone will find everything interesting but with storytelling you can add details to make it better.
