Summary "In this narrative collage of ancient and contemporary storytelling, modern theory, and personal reflection, Ian William Sewall seeks to infuse western pedagogy with a folkloral teaching voice. Through multilayered conversations with individuals and groups--traditional storytellers, teachers, children--he examines the dynamic nature of oral culture, its embodied nature, its connection to place, and its use of metaphor, laughter, ethnicity, and intergenerational conversation to create unique kinds of interactions and learning. Offering storytelling as an ‶ancestral template" of good teaching, Sewall demonstrates how teachers can use the folkoral voice to inform and transform classroom practice."--Provided by publisher
