The challenge with storytelling, according to author Hadiya Nuriddin, is in finding a story to tell. StoryTraining: Selecting and Shaping Stories That Connect focuses on that elusive part of storytelling—finding the stories lurking everywhere and telling them. Hadiya shows you how by pulling from other disciplines, especially literature and creative writing, to help you select, structure, shape, and tell stories that can facilitate connections between you, your learners, and the material. You’ll learn about the characteristics of stories that are most useful for facilitating learning, and understand what each looks like in practice. StoryTraining also includes helpful checklists as well as the author’s sure-fire tips and diagrams for story timelining and her favorite story building blocks models.
