Storytelling for Education
with Rose Rylands Ba Hons PGCE
“Rose is a charismatic storyteller who can really capture the attention of young people. She is brimming with energy and life, and brings humour, mystery and a passionate love of the natural world to her stories. She also points towards important truths and can reconnect her listeners with a deeper sense of meaning.”
Dr Justine Huxley, Programme Director, St Ethelburga's Centre for Peace & Reconciliation, London
Stories that delight, engage, inform, entertain and inspire. Stories for curriculum. Histories of the North York Moors and coast; Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, tales of dinosaurs and Dracula; stories of the sea from vikings and merfolk to ghost ships, whaling, Captain Cook, lifeboats and famous rescues, infamous outlaws, witches and ancient woodlands, a wealth of local history, local lore and legend, painted in pictures through story. More vital today than ever, storytelling can awaken us to the magical, multi-dimensional world that is both within us and around us. By stimulating imagination and memory in this way, children find it easier to not only remember words and facts, but to create their own stories.
