Summary
"Like Stephen Krashen's important work in The Power of Reading, Kendall Haven's Story Proof collects and analyzes research that validates the importance of story, story reading, and storytelling to brain development and the education of children and adults. Haven, an accomplished researcher and storyteller, establishes the need for understanding findings in neural psychology and brain development, as well as the value of a common definition, if one is to fully grasp the importance and necessity of story to the development of the human mind. To support his case, he reviews a wealth of research from storytellers, teachers, and others who have experienced the power of story firsthand." "His findings? As revealed through the research captured in Story Proof the truth is that each and everyone of his thousands of original sources agrees that stories are an effective teaching and learning tool. Story Proof offers proof positive that stories work."--BOOK JACKET
