Stories Are Still an Effective Learning Device

Chadron Record (Chadron, NE) , March 9, 2005


Teachers and other early childhood professionals were reminded at the recent Early Childhood Conference at Chadron State College that a simple story can still be an effective learning device.

Opalanga Pugh, an acclaimed storyteller from Denver, focused primarily on how important stories are to a person, a person's culture and how stories can be used to educate children or anyone who is willing to learn.

"Long before radio, long before television, long before Playstation 2 or the Academy Awards there was a storyteller," she said. "The storyteller had a position of high regard because they were expected to be the entertainers and also had to remember what was passed down through the ages."
