Format: Paperback
This is a nice small book about how to use stories in the classroom of foreign language teaching. There is a brief introduction about the how and the why of using stories in the classroom and the rest of the book presents many stories in a concise form and suggestions on how to use them with students. There are many different stories drawn form many different fields and traditions: African myths, Indian legends, European stories, Jewish stories, fairy tales, Christian stories and more. I found very useful the introduction as well as the stories but the suggestions on how to use them either seem very complicated to follow or very simple for a class of teenagers of this decade. Anyway the collection of stories is excellent.
