Teaching Primary History with Storytelling

Stories bring history to life, and getting children to retell these stories can transform their learning. This collection of curricula has strong links to British historical stories about significant individuals, as well as original stories in historical settings. 

All 37 stories are written specifically for use in classroom settings and make an outstanding resource for homeschoolers, too! Each includes suggestions for engaging and inclusive ways to link the stories to history teaching, English literacy skills, and other areas. Also included, an introduction to the Storytelling School approach and an index. Pages are photocopiable for use in teaching.
