Teaching Through Stories

Teaching Through Stories : Jane and Jeremy Learn to Knit

"Unhurried education, and teaching to the heart through stories, develop a
lifelong love of a continually unfolding process of learning and loving the world."

Teaching through Stories: Jane and Jeremy Learn to Knit will encourage you to take things into your own hands by giving you the tools to teach others. It's effective and fun to teach using stories-this book tells you how!

The first in a series on teaching handwork, this complete guide is written for teachers and others who want to teach this popular craft-or any subject-to children through storytelling, fostering personal connection in any educational setting.

This handbook is a practical guide to creating and telling your own stories, and connecting with listeners, with examples from knitting lessons. It introduces important pedagogical foundations and offers suggestions for managing a busy handwork classroom. The last chapter shares ideas about selecting patterns and materials and over a dozen of the best patterns the author has developed.

Teaching through Stories embodies an unhurried approach to education used successfully for a hundred years in Waldorf schools around the world.
