Human beings have a demonstrated affinity for stories, and some of the world's best teachers are great storytellers. Whether your content is literal, historical, or metaphorical, narratives can make otherwise difficult ideas "stick" to students' minds. In this workshop, we'll explore the use of narratives to make content compelling, memorable, and transferrable.
