Phillips, L.G. (2013). Storytelling as pedagogy. Literacy Learning: The Middle Years, 21(2), ii-iv.

Louise explains storytelling as an oral art form, which can be used as a pedagogical approach in education to connect listeners with new insights and understandings. Based on her experience as a storytelling teacher, Louise outlines four motifs that function as critical elements to the ways that storytelling can work as a pedagogical approach: a walk in the shoes of another, story-tailoring, spinning and weaving, and freedom of expression.
