Storytelling as a Pedagogical Approach for Development Education

This IPP presents a model for using storytelling as a pedagogical approach involving collaborative reflective dialogue to address development themes in the classroom. This approach takes the view that stories are a socially engaging part of life and have opportunities inherent in them for engaging minds and prompting reflective thinking.
