Narration, the art of telling, has been used as a pedagogical tool since ancient times. Over one hundred years ago, Charlotte Mason methodized narration and implemented it in scores of schools in Great Britain. Over the past few decades, educators in the US, mostly in home schools, have followed her guidelines with outstanding results.
This book discusses the theory behind the use of narration and then walks through the process from beginning to end, to show how simply "telling" is the foundation for higher-level thinking and writing.
If your curriculum calls for any type of narration and you're struggling to wrap your mind around what is normal, what is necessary, and how on Earth your kids will ever get it, you need this book! I highly recommend it and the Kindle version is less than $5!
