In India we have classrooms with students from length and breadth of the country representing truly multicultural and diverse backgrounds. It is pertinent to have inclusive classrooms, create empathy in the classroom and allow students to reach universal understanding through the personal experiences of other students and community at large. Stories may serve this purpose as they open the mind so that the hearer is ready to take things in. Storytelling as a pedagogical tool may provide a way to transform this multicultural, diverse classroom into an inclusive classroom where students understand each other and appreciate and celebrate the diversity. The magic of storytelling changes the atmosphere in the classroom and in so doing enhances the learning environment.
CBSE has always supported its teachers and students with the courses, resources and techniques which help them in presenting facts and ideas in such a way that students not only understand it but also retain the knowledge. Story telling as Pedagogy is yet another such course. Storytelling as a pedagogical tool may be used to explore regional and cultural diversity of our country, to integrate stories into the curriculum at all levels, to find out new storytelling methods, to create variety of new stories, and to fuel the power of imagination and creativity.
