Learning with Enjoyment

As I look back on my school days, two teachers stand out for having made the process of education positive and enjoyable for me. One was from elementary school and the other from high school. Both taught with stories, and some of those stories I remember to this day. While we are a species self-protectively equipped to learn quickly from situations of fear and trauma, most of our learning is enhanced through an environment that is positive, enjoyable, and supportive. Storytelling can contribute to those educational characteristics, creating a pleasant learning experience for both parent and child. It has the potential to be a joyful, humorous, fun process for relating and learning.
