The main purpose of this article is to discuss the potential role of storytelling in the teaching and learning of physics.

Then he outlines a planning framework for teaching through storytelling.

This framework consists of the following components: Idea(s) to incite wonder, main plot of the story, ideas to be learned by the pupils, content knowledge, human values and the moral of the story.
