  • In School Programs

    Neuro-science has discovered that our brains are wired to organize,‭ ‬retain and access information through story.‭ ‬Teaching through story means that students will be able to remember what is taught,‭ ‬access that information,‭ ‬and apply it more readily.‭ ‬Story aids memory because it puts information into a meaningful context,‭ ‬to which other information can be‭ “‬attached.‭” ‬Storytelling lays down the narrative or contextual track where knowledge can reside.‭ ‬It is storytelling that creates and maintains connections between isolated pieces of information.
