Children learn in a variety of ways, and teachers need to be able to cater to their learning differences. Stories have the ability to capture the emotional interest of students, and relate theoretical concepts with real life scenarios. Similarly, art is a diverse field that offers innumerable learning opportunities for children. This short course will explore the various ways in which art and storytelling can be integrated in children’s classroom learning experiences to promote creativity and critical thinking.
